I'm a honey and wax farmer.
This year I installed a 2,000 gallon tank to collect my flush water from flushing my equipment. At this point I'm still flushing the sanitize water into the septic tank; I'm looking at changing sanitizes to something more eco friendly this year so I can use that water also.
Over the weekend we harvested honey and ended up with around 900 gallons of thin sugar water. I would think it has around 10 gallons of honey and wax chunks in the water.
I pumped the water last night on top of the soil of my raised beds, but this morning I had bees all over the soil and not doing there job.
I don't compost on a scale that I would be able to use that much water.
I would rather use the water before it starts to ferment.
In the next few days I will have about 400 gallons of water from cleaning out my bottling tanks and a few 55 gallon drums.
If I'm not able to surface apply the water than what would be a good way to reuse the water?
I would let it ferment all the way into vinegar. Maybe start it off with an applecider mother.
Kombucha, L.A.B. , any microherd will turn it into something else, probably something that would make a good fertilizer,pesticide, herbicide, etc.
Whatever it is, it should be able to care for itself with little interference, you have better things to do than baby sit.
I it would make a good "small" beer, a lightly alcoholic beverage. Maybe use it to feed a ginger mother and make stomach friendly ginger beer.
If maple syrup or sorghum syrup making were popular in your area, maybe someone could boil it into something a bit sweeter for you. Not sure what it would be called once it's concentrated...
