    Default Honey extraction method

    I am interested to know what extraction method Warre keepers are predominantly using?

    In Australia it appears to be almost entirely crush/strain using muslin/cheese cloth with a fruit press.

    Is anyone using a centrifugal extraction process (moving the cut/comb into cages) as described by Warre in the 5th edition of his book?

    I am not extracting my Warre combs as of now. I am going to this year. I think extracting will be a pretty big boost to their average production. Stainless cages can be made for a reasonable amount of money.

    I guess the limited responses indicates that most Warre users are not extracting. From the research and planning I have done it's not going to be difficult or expensive, but I guess we'll see later this year.

    If you had a tangential extractor you could probably extract in that. Most of the top bar hive and Warre' hive people I know are doing crush and strain.

    I bought this and had excellent results with it this year. It wasn't messy, was easy to use and clean afterwards.

    I wanted to make one like the example Michael Bush provided but I had stuff going on and needed to find a quick (and more expensive) option.
