Re: 8 or 9 frames in a honey super?
I did 9 because that is more common. I let them draw out the comb in a 10 frame configuration; then put it in a 9 frame configuration before it was capped. That is what my mentor suggested. I would be interested to see what others have to say.
My mentor said that 9 frames in a shallow will yield the same 32-35 pounds of honey that a 10 frame shallow will store. I would be interested in how much an 8 frame will hold.
Good luck, RKR
