I see that Dadant has plastic small cell.
Unfortunatly they spend a ton of time telling you only experienced beekeepers only.......
They neglect to tell me what size the cell is.... Can one assume 4.9
In the case of regressing wouldn't the plastic fountation be more practical?? My understanding is that the first draw will be close to 5.1 and then you have to cull out that and reintroduce 4.9 again.
What are the drawback to plastic? I imagine you should dip the foundation in beeswax first (which sounds a bit labor intensive).
