I was just wondering where to buy Nutra-Bee? I can't seem to find it on any of the usual suppliers' sites, or am I just blind, as usual? (And I apologize in advance if this has already been asked and answered!)
> You obviously do not know what commercial beekeeping is and how hard it is to take a pic when every minute is worth lots.
The context that Keith made his analysis of Lauri's photo was not, IMO, as a commercial beekeeper. I will bet that most readers saw Keith's comment in the context of Keith being the owner/chief marketing officer of Nutra-Bee, a sub producer. His signature line on every post clearly promotes Nutra-Bee. Beekeeper vs sub manufacturer are two significantly different roles.
Keith was critiquing a sub recipe. As I said earlier, If Keith chooses to post aggressive comments about sub recipes or sub competitors, he should expect to get flack when those comments are not carefully explained. Go back and read the relevant portion of the thread. You can clearly see that Keith was not prepared to explain/document his critique, and seemed surprised when asked to do so.

You are making poor assumptions. Most people on this forum know that Keith is a reputable commercial beekeeper.
I'm sorry that creates to much hoopla.
I also find it funny I get thrown under the bus for only selling to the big boys( by the pallet) than get accused of conflict of interest on beesource from the small boys. Surley can't win around here. lol

Post the secret recipe
No fancy, hard to get ingredients and it should be under $.25 per pound packed with bioflavonoids and gluten free. You want us to take you seriously and you don't even have a Nutra-Bee pollen sub girl of the month calendar.
I hear that little voice that is saying 'Don't post'
But here is my entry for November for the Nutra Bee Calendar...A good display of Full spectrum amino acids

Really, you hunt with a back tension release? Bit of OCD mixed with your overachiever tendencies?
Naw, that's the 'Just Cuz' Carter release. Thumb trigger. I can punch that baby any time I want.
Thanks so much...glad I don't have to start at 3 AM
Unless there is the info for a source where I can get single tubs of Nutra Bee this coming spring, I'm not reading through this 11 pages of cattle patty. I didn't get replies to my emails and IMs sent this last spring when I was trying to buy Nutra Bee. Until it comes available in small orders, the bees are taking Bee Pro just fine.
Not graphic enough Lauri, I don't see any bites taken out of that heart.
Lol. This thread is little more than some overblown egos arguing how many angles can dance on the head of pin. Classic Internet gibberish.

I ate it alright, the best part of the deer. But slice it thin, shake in Progresso Italian crumbs and fry in olive oil first...
I did try a bite of a fresh Elk liver out in the field, though. It was tastless and tough. A very small bite I should add.
Sorry to get offf topic, Barry. Won't happen again.
My vision was to inform folks on what to look for & how to do some simple math, for either making or buying sub. I hope some keepers here now are a little better informed to make better chioces going foward with pollen sub feeding.
P.S. knowledge is power.

Taste test results on a single hive; mine 2o% soy,20% brewers, 60% sugar for dry mix, little egg yolk, corn oil and veg oil. one patty with apple cider vinegar one without. Slight perference for the with vinegar.
Nutr -bee mixed with 60% added sugar. Visably finer ground than mine. Much greater consumption, easy ten times more. Nutra -bee is the only brand I 've tried so I have no other data.
Results for a one hive, 3 day consumption test. Mine is not even a dog food to steak comparison in the eyes of the bees.
Anyone else done a same hive comparison with different subs.

I really am blown away by this post, tons of great information from what has to be over a combined century of knowledge, Lauri, incredible pics and I'm taking your recipe to heart. Keith, I enjoy your videos and pay close attention to what you say in the forums, I am amazed by your operation. That being said; post a flipping picture of wet brood. There is no way a guy with your experience and products has NOT taken pics of his brood...good God!
It takes a family to raise a family, it takes a village to really screw that up... Djei5
