I have seen several post about removing moisture form extracted honey.  I have some that is in the 18-20% range and want to make it less.  When I extracted it the humidity was about 70 to 80%. We have had an extremely wet year. I would like  know the size of the areas, and the size of the humidifiers used to remove the moisture to the 17% area. I only have about 20 gallons that are suspect. Small bee keeper from North Texas. Thanks.

Since the honey is already extracted, I would put it in something that will create the most surface area.  You will probably have to leave the dehumidifier on for several days, maybe more.  Stirring periodically should help too. Any dehumidifier should work.  Just keep checking and emptying the tank of the dehumidifier when needed.  I would put it in a room/space that is small, if possible.
BTW, welcome to the forum!  Don't be a stranger. :welcome:
