  1. Re: A new Year. What are your goals for the bees in 2020?

    20 gallons of honey, first time making comb honey, and 15 hives and 20 nucs going into winter 20-21 will make me a very happy boy!

    Re: Black Friday Sales

    I find sometimes that ML ships without sending me the tracking info. Once i received a shipment before I knew it had been shipped!

    It has never caused me any problems, just kind of unusual.

    Re: Are they nuts or hardy winter bees

    My Saskatraz hive flies in the 30's, I am not sure what they are doing. Probably cleansing. The other 10 hives show no activity at those temperatures.

    Re: Using cuties in mead

    I think for the first try, I would follow as closely as I could the JOAM recipe, as it is proven.

    I would not includethe zest, but then I hate marmalade, so I might not be the guy to ask.

    Re: My first Melomel - elderberry mead

    Don't worry, I've got it covered. :thumbsup:

    I added a little citric acid (less than 1/8 teaspoon per bottle) to them, and I think it brightened them up a little. And now they also have a couple...

    Re: Help. Need my Bees to move on

    Surely someone would remove that one for free!

    I don't recommend hitting them with the hose, that would do them in as a colony.

    Re: My first Melomel - elderberry mead

    Two bottles survived Thanksgiving, one is destined for Christmas, and I will attempt to age the other for a while.

    You can choose USD pricing at the top of the page. Their prices look great, but I still do better (so far) with the free shipping from other US based suppliers.

    Re: Making a wine recipe a little sweeter

    It depends. The alcohol produced is dependent on the sugar level, and on the yeast strain. If you use a yeast that has a high alcohol tolerance, it may ferment out any extra added sugar, resulting in...

    Yep, and the foundation is on sale as well, so together the frame and foundation is about $1.50 / frame for deeps. Low enough to where I am picking up another 200.
