Continued observations on the relation of temperature to the deterioration of honey in storage show that severe losses due to deterioration of honey in storage can be prevented. Somewhere below 55°F. honey can be safely stored for indefinite periods. At a range of temperatures somewhere between 55°F. and 70°F. optimum conditions are provided at which the majority of honies may be expected to ferment. At a temperature of 80°F. or slightly below, fermentation develops slowly in unripe, and probably not at all, in well ripened honies.
