    Anyone use the wax from brood frames? What do you do with it? I feel bad throwing it away, but I can't use the wax in body products because it was in the hive when I treated. I've used it in candle making, but I don't find the medium/dark brown a nice color in most of the candle molds I...

    While scouring the internet, I've seen a number of references to a method of purifying beeswax that uses a filter designed for the maple syrup industry. The device is called a Filter Press.

    Forgive me if this question has been asked before on the forum - I couldn't see it anywhere. I'm making beeswax candles with coconut oil (1 cup coconut oil to 1 kg wax). I'm pouring them into candle jars, and I'm trying to make it so the wax either sticks completely to the jar, or else pulls...
