    Re: What kind of sugar

    I also add Honey B Healthy and Amino B Booster (same company) which helps with some trace element items. It also does not hurt to add a pollen patty to a hive (new or fall prep). If they do not use...

    Re: Cappings bag query

    They worked out pretty well and I am pleased with them. The ergonomics of pouring your crushed mix into the bag while holding up and open was fun, but workable. I put around 2 quarts of mash into...
