    Lead the way. since it is your idea, and you have so much faith in it, you should be the one to do it.

    Why? Do I have a store? Do I sell honey?

    There was a time not so long ago when everything was in a glass container. It traveled in railroad cars, trucks, air planes, you name it. You found it on the grocery shelves and you put it in your metal carts and carried it home in a paper bag. Glass is 100% recyclable and doesn't pollute the environment. Those that care use glass more and more and those that don't use plastic.

    If the original poster does not care if the honey is visible he can use all sorts of stainless vessels to do the same thing.

    During that same time period they also carried open boxes of dynamite in those same railroad cars, trucks, air planes, you name it.

    During that same time period you also couldnt get sued for dispensing really bad advice on the internet that leads to personal injury.

    "Glass is 100% recyclable and doesn't pollute the environment."

    I suppose you think the plants that melt the glass to recycle it run on solar energy?

    1. Because it was your idea. You come up w/ ideas, suggest them, say you know they will work, have no experience doing so. But expect people to take you seriously. Maybe you weren't being serious. What would you suggest someone taking your advice do when the honey crystalizes? Thought about that?

    2. Not that I know of, do you?

    3. Apparently not or you might have made a suggestion based on experience.

    What's the big deal about seeing the honey? One can see that there is honey in a plastic tote. Did you know that up until quite recently, in your terms stretched just a little, that almost all honey was sold in cans? 5 gallon square tin cans and cans the size of large tomatoe cans? And wooden barrels? I don't think that honey was ever sold in 5 gallon glass jars.

    First of all he wanted to dispense not sell the jars. secondly, I never said 5 gallons, use three or smaller if you like.

    Crystallized, warm it, it is glass. Crystallized honey still flows. It wouldn't be a big deal to get it out. How would you get it out of a plastic, steel, wooden, or ceramic container? Cut it open?

    I would want to see the honey and not through a plastic tote.

    Really? W/ a Thread Title like that, I had no idea.

    Well, not only do you not make much honey, you don't buy much from storers that use Totes. I sell 8 to ten of them per month.

    Congrats to Ace for over 1,000 posts since March of this year! Must be some kind of record.

    Bad advice is not only free, it comes in mass quantities too.

    What's the latest on that extractor with the ceiling fan motor in the bottom of the extractor barrel
    that you designed & built last fall.

    Really looking for pics or movie of it in operation.

    Thanks

    No. Some are made of glass.

    Typos aside, Ace specifically recommended using a glass carboy. That's a really bad idea for several reasons stated earlier in this thread.

    I'll answer you but it might get axed. I still am stuck on the idea of pulling the honey at the last minute in the fall. Nothing I have read has convinced me to pull it now. I wasn't sure if I was going to get honey this year. I was lead to believe that two frames of bees making it through winter wasn't worth bothering with. That hive now has one deep and four mediums on it so it is a good possibility of giving me some honey. My new hive has one deep and two mediums on which is about par for a new hive (my experience).

    Anyway, rest assured I will have pics, video, and results (good or bad) for the forum when the time comes.
