Here is a chart I made showing Aprox pounds of honey per inch of bucket.
The bucket has a taper from top to bottom. I compensated for this at every inch
increment. I used Excel to create it, but made a image from it for easy viewing.
Old timers may laugh, but new guys may find it useful to see what you harvested
if you do not have a scale Smiley

If it is correct, it is great. I don't know what diameter bucket you have, but 5 gallons being only 12 inches deep seems a little shallow for a normal 5 gallon bucket.

I was thinking the same thing Iddee... my 5 gallon bucket dimensions are:  12 in wide at top, 10 1/4 at bottom and 14 1/2 inches high...thats a food grade bucket too... and not a 6 gallon.   its a great chart..if i had the same buckets!!!  thanks for puttin together though!

Great posting wish I was as good with figures however;

Something is wrong, these are not the correct measurements for a 5 Gal. bucket,I don't believe.

I use frosting buckets from the donut shop, they measure ;inside, 10 1/4 in. bottom, 11 1/8 in. top, and 12 in. deep to the rim,[ this is actually unusable height as you need room for the lid ], which I believe is close to the measurements you gave.
About 4 + Gal.usable, I believe is all they will hold.

Don't mean to counterdick but just ain't sure about the 5 gal. bucket size you show.

According to the ABC&XYZ of Beekeeping 1 US Gallon (3.79 Liters) of honey weighs 11 pounds 12 ounces at 680F.  As long as your buckets have Liter or quarter Gallon marks it's fairly easy to work out how many pounds of honey they contain.

I really don't work much honey in 68 degree F. weather, then again I also haven't seen a 5 gallon bucket marked in litters, quarts, gallons, etc.

Course we're back in the hills, maybe city folk have them !
