    Default DIY extraction video how to

    I found this video on you tube and really liked how he kept it simple and low budget. I would have really liked to have seen this when I was researching on extracting. He shows the whole process from start to finish using a three frame Mann Lake extractor. Hope this helps if you are trying to get your head wrapped around extracting in your garage or kitchen like myself.

    Nice! This is like what I did this year. I uncapped with a knife that I got from a thrift store for 25 cents, on a big cookie sheet to catch drips. Then spin in a hand-powered extractor. I strain the honey through a stainless steel colander (thrift store again) into a big pot, then pour it from there into washed-out glass peanut butter jars. Cheap (except for the extractor, but that will last forever), simple, and do-able in the kitchen for a small-time beekeeper like me.
