Cleaning Honey, pail filters

4784 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.

I use two metal filters. If I use cheese cloth (can buy this in the grocery store) over the filters, clean up is easy and you just discard the cheese cloth. If I don't have any cheese cloth and wax gets in the top filter, I use hot water and one of those little brushes made for cleaning vegetables. Very easy.
