    Zookeep...Good to see you again! I am glad we could meet! I have a bunch of wax capping's here from extractions that I want to rinse for mead. What recipe did you go with? I have asked for my carboys and such from Santa for Christmas. Any advice you can share, do's and don'ts? Thanks!

    How are you doing with your bees? I had my State Inspection last week...I've had a few crashes of late, as has one of my best beek friends. The flow this winter is sucking...big time! Interested how you are doing. It looks like they will be adding the Master Beekeeper Program to the agenda at the next So FL Bee College...Woo Hoo! Hope to see you there! :thumbsup:

    Zook, That amazing picture of yours shows how thick that mead is----lying on its side and nary a drop spilling. How will you get it out of the bottle to drink it? :lol::rotfl::rolling:
    Enjoy!
