are there any descriptions on how to do this?
I'm a first year wannabe beekeeper who's getting bees on May 10th. I have two hives, and because it's late in the season I'm not even sure if I'll have honey this year.
I don't want to make the investment in a mechanical extractor right now, since there may be nothing to harvest until next year, assuming *knock wood* the bees overwinter safely.
anyone have a link or a reference on old school extracting?
I figured I'd research this option, just in case.
