Hum? I'm not sure what you're getting at here.
a 1 gallon batch uses 3.5lb of honey, exactly as per the recipe.
24oz is, according to my reckoning, 1lb 8oz, so for 3 gallons, 7 jars of that size would be correct.
Also I understand that 1 US gallon of honey is about 12 lb in weight, so what is the problem ? have you used a gallon of honey for a 3 gallon batch or what ?
