How Much Honey?

For an average sized batch of 1634 Meadery mead, say 150 gallons, it takes 36 GALLONS or 430 lbs of honey! How many bees is that? Since each honey bee is capable making about 1.5 teaspoons of honey over the course of its lifetime, that would be 6,720 bees required to produce a gallon of honey! Times that by 36 and you get a whole lotta bees!
