    how much honey should you expect to to get from one full deep frame?

    i extracted 6 frames and got almost 3 gallons. i dont know how many lbs - no scale. I used a radial extractor.

    You get about 60 to 80 lbs. per deep from what I've been told, though I don't know anyone that uses deeps for honey anymore.

    One gallon of honey is about 12 lbs. depending on the type of honey and moisture content.

    Greetings . . .

    One deep frame can hold 1.3 to 2.7 liters of honey (4 to 8.4 lbs).
    (One gallon = 3.79 liters)

    A deep frame contains about 5 lbs of honey.
    (Two quarts = 5 lbs., 14.6 oz)

    "Removed Fr #27, 98% capped, weighed 7 lbs. Crushed and strained through paint strainer bag. Yeild: 5-1/2 lbs, filled five 12oz jars."
