Re: How fine Do You Filter Honey?
Okay then, it's an industry technicality, or technical term. Strainers are of courser mesh, filters finer. You will never find a strainer made from layers of cylindrically confined discs layered w/ diatomecous earth, which requires honey to be heated and FORCED thru by pressure, not the pressure of gravity, but artificially applied pressure.
What almost all beekeepers do is straining. Nylon bags, nylon cloth, and metal wire mesh bowls are strainers.
Terms commonly used amongst beekeepers, those who are small scale on up to those who are commercial, help us to communicate a common understanding. We can argue the point, but, after a while, we should quit doing so and come to a consensus. I am of the camp which thinks these things have already been settled and that those new to the industry should learn the already established lingo. In some ways similar to when someone moves to a new country and learns the language rather than insisting that those where they have moved to accomodate them.
