Exceptionally Good Year... 200lbs. from 4 Hives
When extracting the Capped frames I noticed they still had thick honey in them after spinning. The consistency was that of a very damp brown suger. When I ran the honey through my double screen, it took a very long time to get through the fine screen. It was getting clogged with what I thought at first was wax but realized it was sugar.
What did I do wrong???
The honey was all white capped.

Thanks for shaking my memory.

I had a few frames of uncapped honey last year that I stored to entice the girls to the honey supers this year.
As I look at the frames only the lower centers had the sugar and new honey circled around.

I learned a lesson here.

Thanks again!
