    I know endo can not be cured by modern medicine, so I have my doubts with propolis tea.

    Any validity to...

    Re: cloudy

    I would also check to make sure you didn't get a stronger wild yeast in there and its renewing fermentation.

    They are not the last of my bees, so I'm not too worried.
