These people are dumb. Do not listen to them. Volume is not the same as weight. If you were to pour out a measured cup of lead and a measured cup of feathers, would they weigh the same? Of course not, they have different mass. In liquids, we call this the specific gravity.  Water and honey have different specific gravities - honey has a HIGHER gravity, meaning that it WEIGHS more in an ounce to ounce comparison with water.

1 quart of HONEY is roughly equal to 3 pounds. It depends slightly where in the world you are and what type of honey you are using - but - you're generally safe to assume that 1 qt honey = 3 pounds. 1  pint = 1 1/2 pounds. 1 cup = 3/4 pounds.

Are you making mead?

1 Quart equals to 32 fluid ounces. Where as 16 ounces equal to 1 pound. So you need to take out 2 pounds of honey as far as that bottle is concerned.

Right: 1 Quart is 32 fluid ounces, but
Wrong: 16 fluid ounces of honey does not weigh 1 pound.
So: Just measure out your quart, or two pints or four cups or fluid ounces, and there you are. Weight is irrelevant.
