I am a beginning beekeeper and after watching a lot of videos, was thinking about trying the single brood chamber technique. But - I have no access to drawn comb, just foundation. It sounds like you need drawn comb to pull this off. Is that right? Am I missing something?
Thanks.
I prefer sticking with the same size boxes for brood and honey. I use 8-frame mediums. When I started 12 years ago quite a few experienced beeks were starting to switch from deeps to mediums because of the significant weight difference and the convenience of uniformity. Both reasons made good sense to me and I’m glad I followed suit. Of course with all things bees, everyone does it a little different and you may have heard about significant advantages to deep brood boxes, but I’m not aware of any.
