I use a scratcher and it all goes into the extractor. At some point I use a spatula to get everything out the honey gate into the bucket filter. Not sure where I got the filters but they fit a bucket well and once I get all the honey into the filter/bucket, I tie up and hang the filter so it's not touching the bucket and can drain free and clear. It's all drained out overnight, I then tie up the filter and toss it into a bucket to deal with all the wax cappings inside later. I tried the filters from Mannlake that fit into the top of a 5g bucket, but the honey did not move through it very fast if at all, so needless to say, those got tossed pretty quickly.
