Re: Filtering questions
Many operations don't bother with filtering, they rely on settling to get all of the stuff out. Since honey is so dense, many operations simply pump spun honey into 55 gallon barrels and let them sit for a few days when bottling day comes up after extraction day.
If thats not a change you want to make, warming the honey makes it pass a lot faster, but filters get clogged, especially if you are doing honey, which is why people rely on settling. If you NEED to filter, settle first, filter next to get all of the big stuff out first.
