I know a lot of people have standardized on the medium depth for brood and supers. I am caving to pressure from all sides to do so.
My question is for anyone raising queens using 6 5/8" for brood. What do you use for nucs? 5 frames of deep = 7.5 frames of mediums, so I would think 5 frames might be a bit shy. A ten frame box could only be 2.5 frames more than the 7.5. Would a ten frame medium box work for a nuc or does it need to be more tall and less wide? I see Brushy Mountain, who seem to like the all medium setup, has a double high five frame nuc in 6 5/8". Does anyone think it matters whether the 10 frames are in one box or stacked in nucs to make two stories?
