Honey weighs approximately one and a half times an equal volume of water so a gallon (128 oz jar) of honey weighs approximately 12 pounds (192 weight ounces), and remember there are 4 quarts in a gallon. A half gallon (2 quarts or a 64 oz jar) of honey will be approximately 6 lbs or 96 ozs of honey. A quart size (32 oz jar) of honey is about 3 lbs or 48 ozs of honey. One pint (16 oz jar) is 1.5 pounds or 24 ounces. A half pint (8 oz jar) will hold 12 ozs of honey.
