    Thanks for the link Iddee. That isn't too bad of a price.

    My apologies Dave, for answering a question directed to Perry--I didn't want to wait on this one. The refractometer is great---but the scale it comes with for reading the water/sugar percentage is not suitable for honey. Wines and beers have a much lower range of sugar concentration and honey is out of range. HOWEVER, those cheap refractometers with the sugar scale suitable for honey are just fine. I bought a cheap one (about $50, made in china) a few years ago and it is just fine. They are fast and easy to use and best of all, as far as I can tell, accurate.

    Oh, no worries Ef. If I'm going to spend $50, I might as well spend a little extra and get one like Iddee linked.

    I do but most (hobbiests) probably don't. You are probably just fine Crazy8, I didn't mean to cause undo angst.
    The one Iddee mentioned is a very reasonable price but only go that route if you are selling lots.

    Perry, at that price, it is worth it for the education. Even hobbyists should know what one is and how to use it.

    PS. If any of you get one of these, please tell Bluesky you came to them through this site. In fact, you can click on their ad in the side panel and you are there. Check out other items while you are there. They seem to be a nice group of folks.

    I've learned a whole lot of things this year. But one thing I keep thinking is that you can never have enough boxes and frames.

    Brett,

    If that falls through, you are welcome to come over to my house and extract your frames.
