    Re: Northern Midwest Winter Beekeeping Manifesto

    Ian winters his entire commercial operation indoors, but optimal temperature is 40F, 50 is too warm. You may eventually make money on the hive products, especially if you sell at super premium...

    Re: 18% ABV Sweet mead

    Another update. After a little psyching myself up, I tasted the mead from the coffee filter set up. Still has a definite yeasty taste and is very sweet, but no other off flavors that I could discern....

    Re: 18% ABV Sweet mead

    I transfered to the secondary today. My BPM is right around 1. SG is now 1.038, which should mean that the ABV is at 13.12% so far. Reran the numbers and it looks like I'll have to go fairly dry to...

    Enjoy your trip Michael. I had ignored this thread for some time until you brought it up again at the beginning of this month. Once I actually read it, I realized what a worthy cause it was. Best of...

    Re: Two untreated hives in my bee yard

    To heck with all that, treat his hives and don't tell him. You have to protect your bees. In the time between now and next spring, maybe you can bring him around or help him find another place for...

    Re: Planning for my first bee's come spring

    Welcome to Beesource Littlejoe. I agree with the one race suggestion. You should get your bees in late March or early April for the best experience and to catch the flow. Durham is not much different...

    Sticky: Re: bone head split so far, somebody save the day.

    I love apple fritters. Bought some from Walmart last week and they were terrible. What is your recipe?
  11. Re: How much honey could one expect from one hive? Spring

    Not so.

    300.000 kg would equal 661.387 lb. You cannot derive decimal point precision from an equation when one of the numbers is obviously not a precise number.
  12. Re: How much honey could one expect from one hive? Spring

    IFOH, keeping it a little more local, 35-40# per hive is considered pretty good here just a bit north of you. Some hives will do better than others, and some will do nothing at all. Your original...

    Re: Help with Comb Honey

    For me it was hit or miss this past season, mostly miss. I use foundationless frames for my comb honey and place them in the center positions of a super in which the bees have already shown an...

    Re: 18% ABV Sweet mead

    Fermentation has slowed way down. Approximately 3 BPM. I plan on transfering to the secondary sometime this week. As of last week, SG was 1.050, down from my OG of 1.138. Hoping to hit somewhere...

    Russ, why don't you give us all the executive summary version? You are very good at boiling down lengthy articles and providing the most salient points.

    Re: When Should I Wrap My Hives??

    I am a third year beekeeper and will volunteer my survival rates with unwrapped hives in zone 7a. First year I lost a small nuc when temps dropped to -8F. Not enough bees to maintain temps. We...
  20. Re: Too late to start feeding sugar syrup in Jersey?

    Clark, I am still feeding down here in Richmond. I believe my weather is similar to yours so while it is awfully late to be starting, it is not too late to boost their stores a little. Just make the...

    When my QEs get propolized, I set them out and the bees scavenge the propolis off of them, leaving them pretty clean.

    Re: best way to 2:1 feed in-hive?

    I really like the Beemax hivetop feeder from Betterbee. Too bad they do not make one for nucs. Just bought 3 Ceracell nuc feeders that I will be trying out. Very nice.
