Can someone tell me about how long it takes the bees to cap a full super of honey. I have several supers full but not capped.

Wrong question... The bees will cap when the honey is dry enough or ripe. Every day, perhaps every hour, the bee who has the watch for moisture content goes out and checks the cells. If they are ripe they get capped.

What you need is a good hot dry spell. So do I and I'm in California.
