Cleaning Honey, pail filters

4781 Views 8 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  clarkfarm
I just finished my first extraction.... WOOT!

I got about 8 gallons from 3 medium frames (edit... supers... dooh :0).

Now I'm cleaning up and it really is tough to get all the little wax out of the stainless pail filters. Any tricks you guys use?

I also ran into frames that had some pollen in them and processed that with the honey. What do you guys do with that?

Thanks for any help.

Congrats on your first extraction!! 8 gallons from 3 frames??? You must have some HUGE frames!! I chuck mine in the dishwasher. I also use a nylon straining bag which removes most of the larger deposits of pollen.:)
