Well, I harvested several hives, extracted and was working on cutting out a few supers of comb in foundation-less frames. Some beautiful dry cap, some wet cap and some darker comb. After chunking out the darker stuff I realized it had been used for brood. Quite a bit chewier... but still tasted fine... nonetheless I think it'll end up as crush and strain. Might be a little too "natural" for most folks.

I would try to leave the frames that had brood in them as feeder frames.

I had that same thought... After I cut it all out. But all is not lost. The wet frames went back in and I'm still getting comb drawn and filled pretty fast. My struggle at the moment has been keeping ahead of their expansion.
