Re: Bees wax
Like Jim wrote, put watter in whatever pan or bucket or mold that you use.
I know one outfit running a cpl thousand hives that uses one gallon buckets as molds. They make the nicest wax in the State. I know other folks who use 5 gallon buckets. Another outfit that renders cappings or combs uses pans like you might see at a slaughter house. I used to use bread pans. But I only had a small melter. All sorts of ways. But water used in every one of them.
