Apple juice usually has a gravity around 1.050. Can you measure a sample of the juice alone?

If you add 3 pounds of honey in a gallon, you should have a gravity close to 1.105, so adding that to apple juice should give you a gravity above 1.150.

What is your uncorrected hydrometer reading?

Is all the honey dissolved?

Can you verify the amount of honey added?
