now now, condescension is tacky.... :-)

seriously Scott, what kind of water to honey ratio to you have to use to 
get the temporature to what you think you need.  I admit to doing somthing 
very similar to your process, but when I do it I come out at about 130 
degrees F. Obviously I am not using enough hot water, but what ratio of 
boiling water to honey (say gallons/lb) do you need to do the voodoo that 
you do?
