best ways to strain....
so, i [used] my honey extraction today.... quite interesting, quite messy, and quite a bit slower than i thought it would be.... i use a hand crank to spin 3 medium frames at a time. i do NOT have an electric knife, so i had to resort to scraping open the caps with a fork. This leaves quite a bit of wax to be strained after spinning.... i strained through 3 different sized screens and never heated the honey at any time. Is there a way to speed up this process short of buying an electric knife? The honey looks like lemonade, perhaps just a bit darker.... i'm waiting for bubbles to rise before bottling the stuff.
