You are watching: How many pounds is a gallon of honey

I"m (slowly) draining part honey with a colander right into a 5 gallon bucket using the "mash the wax" an approach as i only have 2 hives and a small amount the surplus. I have the right to guess the gallons in the bucket, but around how plenty of 8oz or 16oz jars have the right to I fill with a gallon? That"s assuming I"m analysis the descriptions correctly and the jars are "dry" weight together opposed come "liquid" weight...If I organize a 16oz (1 lb) love husband jar next to a pint canning jar, it looks like two love husband jars might fit in the pint. Does the sound about right?I need to order some jars because that family and also neighbors and I desire to obtain the appropriate size and amount.Thanks,Larry
Honey weighs a small under 12 lbs per gallon.

It must be just under 12, relying on how full you fill them.It"ll stupid ya tho. I put 4 5 gallon buckets (60lbs each) right into my honey bottling tank and fill by eye and hardly ever before do I get 8 full situations of 5lb jars of honey. Usually one seasoned or part of a jug short.
2-8 oz jars in a pint2- pints in a quart = 32 oz4-quarts in a gallon = 128 oz for this reason 1 gallon (128 oz)= 16-8oz jarsor 10.66-1lb(12 oz) jarsor 8 pint jars or 4 quart jars.Now if you want to failure pricing I functioned a chart approximately see what load went in certain varieties of jars.I offered a price of $5 a poundan 8oz seasoned holds much less than a pound and sells for$3.33666(I round up to $3.50)a pint mason jar holds 1.4 lb of honey so I market for roughly $7A quart ball jar hold 2.75 lb of love husband so it is $13.75 (I usally gain $12)and of food 12 oz plastic to express jars organize 1lb and sell for $5

Well,here us go again. That"s the problem w/ going native volume measure to load measure.Larry, you should have an idea now regarding how many cases of jars you need so you understand you have much more jars 보다 you carry out honey. Right? So, that"s what you need to do. To buy a bunch of situations of 8 oz. Jars and also some cases of 1 lb jars and fill up as many as you need or can. Climate you will know the answer to your genuine question. "How plenty of 8 oz and 1 lb jars do I require for the volume the honey i have?"
Thanks for every the replies.... I had actually guessed 10 lb per gallon, for this reason a real life number of 8 or so is OK v me. It looks like I"ll have 2 gallons as soon as I"m all done, 16 1lb jars will certainly make pretty stocking stuffers because that family and friends. Time to order some jars and labels!Larry
"approximately how many 8oz or 16oz jars can I fill with a gallon? "There space 12 pounds in a gallon,60lbs in a 5 gallon bucket.An 8 oz(fluid volume)jar holds.7lbs(by weight)of love husband so 12lbs split by .7=17.142857 for this reason we can assume that you will certainly get approximately 17-8 oz jars of honey per pound and also you will finish up through the .142857 jars on her pants/floor/fingers/and stuck to the inside of the bucket.A 16 oz(pint mason jar)will hold 1.4 lbs by load of honey so you will obtain 8.5714285 jars per pound.I think practically anyone through a windy education(like mine) should have the ability to figure it out from there.All you need to do is plugin your gallons and also do a few gozintas to come up v a number.
A 16 oz(pint mason jar)will organize 1.4 lbs by load of love husband so girlfriend will get 8.5714285 jars per pound.I think virtually anyone with a public education(like mine) should have the ability to figure it the end from there.All you have to do is plug in your gallons and also do a few gozintas to come up through a number.
Larrythebeek,If you room talking gallons, pints and half pints, you space talking VOLUME no weight.Therefore: a gallon is 8 pints or 16 fifty percent pints.The weight of the to fill jar is irrelavent and will vary dependant top top the moisture content of the particular honey in every container.

Man, you guys are make this complicated.If you order 1 lb honey jars girlfriend will require 12 per gallon that honeyIf you usage pint canning jars (16 fluid oz jars) girlfriend will require 8 per gallon (each 16 oz jar by volume holds 1.5 lbs, or 24 oz of love husband by weight.)So to reiterate:(12) 1 lb love husband jars every gallonor(8) pint jars per gallon
Fuzzy,by the way those were not the weights of to fill jars however the weight of the honey itself.I was breaking under my cost and profit top top the honey.The jar price is an additional column altogether.
