I am a new beekeeper. I have been working with a mentor. We harvested about 7 gallons from his hives last week. After the bucket from the extractor was full, we poured some into a pitcher and then into the jars. He also tried using a honey gate on a 5 gallon bucket to fill from, but that dribbled and came out too fast to make a clean fill, so he just went back to filling a pitcher from the bucket, then filled jars from the pitcher. Seems to me there should be an easier way to fill honey jars. I saw someone on YouTube put a spigot on a bucket, but it was way too small an opening and took about 45 seconds to fill a pint jar. I looked for larger spigots. I found some 55 gallon drum faucets, but those are 2" opening. How do you bottle your honey?
