Re: Difficulties with spinning honey
Earlier this year I had difficulty extracting some frames that were partially crystalized. We used a cappings scratcher like you are using to lift the cappings off. Problem was that the liquid honey spun out fine but left the crystals in the cells so the frames were still heavy. Figured it out as we were straining and the fine strainer was getting clogged with crystals. That we warmed and strained but there was nothing we could do with the hard stuff still in the comb. Ended up feeding a bunch of honey back to the bees.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
