Re: Mann lake Plastic Uncapping Tank
I tried uncapping and draining--it didn't work for me. I tried them in the usual vertical position, then laid them horizontally, and got very little honey. I didn't try upside down, but I don't think that would be any better than horizontal.

Also, since the sides aren't straight (they are molded with bends to reinforce them) you can't drain every last bit of honey out of them, and I'm left holding the tank over a bucket to drain it.
