    Default My new honey filter material

    After 35 years of pumping my honey crop through ladies nylon stockings, which of course added a sensual thrill to honey processing, I this year had a brilliant vision and have been using drain pipe poly filter sock. It comes in a 100 foot roll. I cut about a 26" length, knot the lower end, and clamp it to my double pipe outlet. It does not sag, run and stretch unpredictably like a nylon stocking, and seems to filter just as well. They are also reusable. Possibly this discovery will end years of embarrassment soliciting the few women in my life for their discard nylons, and sneaking around the women's department at Walmart. It will however also end decades of fantasy and voyuerism in the honey room.

    Well, I only buy NEW knee high stockings. I do, however, enjoy the funny little smirk the check out girl gives me when I give her a wink that says, "I'll never tell."

    Ok people...before anyone else gets their shorts in a knot (pun intended)....do I need to delete my post?
    I know I have an unusual sense of humor and thought it would be a good chuckle.
    To delete or not....that is the question.

    Has anyone ever thought of using a food grade filter since we are after all producing a food product?

    Old thread I realize, but I am curious to know what the minimum temperature would be to use a filtering setup like this? I like to keep the temps below 105 deg F and occasionally run some "extra raw" honey around 80 deg F.

    Thanks

    When I got to the checkout counter the lady said, "You don't have that much hair". I just gave her the $20.00 and left her wondering why I needed 2000 bobby pins.

    Aw, come on. Used ladies stockings can't be any worse than having the local maidens crush grapes with their bare feet. Might even be a selling point if you're making mead.

    Dunno about the men's underware. I'm sure there is a niche market, but I'm not into that.

    We tried the bobby pins. OK for brood, but when the bees draw one side of a deep and fill it with honey, bobby pins are not enough and you get wonky comb. I gave in and got the wiring tools.
