Re: Feeding/filling multiple top feeders
I have some large pots, 16 and 40 quarts. I mostly use the 16 qt. and mix up about three gallons at a time as it gets quite heavy. I use a large funnel to pour the syrup into heavy weight gallon jugs. Milk jugs are too flimsy. I am running 16 hives and yes, it takes some time both to mix the syrup and then to feed, but I still think this is better than trying to mix a larger quantity and then move a drum to the apiary. Maybe you should consider 5 gallon pails with a pour spout on the lid? That is my next move.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
