I know I will get more than one opinion, and probably a few people who think I am dumb for considering this at all. But here goes...
I do my full extraction in the beginning of September, but was looking to extract a little bit before then to give to some friends who are leaving before September. I don't want to get all of my extraction equipment out for 3-4 lbs. of honey, too much work and time.
So my idea was that I could go to a hive, pull 2 or 3 frames from a super and bring them home. Use a serrated bread knife to cut the cappings off. And then lay the frames, cut side down, on a cookie coolling rack and let them drip out into a baking tray, or something overnight. The next day I would flip and repeat.
What do you guys think? Sound feasible? Any pointers you could give me about some factors I am not seeing?
