Re: beeswax melting / filtering - need help
I use a crock pot I bought at a flea market for a few bucks. You can set it on low and leave it overnight. You can bundle your cappings in several layers of cheesecloth and put some water in the bottom of the pot. When the wax is melted, pick up the bag and let it drain into the pot to harden.
This year, I drained the cappings in a sieve overnight, then spread them out in a hive cover for the bees to clean up. They did a nice job and I didn't waste any honey either.
I want bees that make up for my mistakes.
