This is what I did, but this is my first time so take this for what it's worth. I put my cappings in a 5 gallon bucket. Filled it with cool tap water and put the lid on and brought inside. Next day I poured out the water through a standard colander/strainer that I use for spaghetti. Did this for three days. Probably 2 more days than needed. Then I did a straight water and cappings boil. It settled and the wax looked ok with a lot of gunk settled, the water was really dirty. So tonight I cut up my wax put it in panty hose (see Panty Hose Thread) Boiled some water and placed panty hose in water, once all melted out I pulled the panty hose out and held above the pot and squeezed with some tongs until it stopped dripping. Worked out well.How did you get your wax really clean?
I am melting cap pings for the first time.
I got some lovely honey as I melted them slowly..they had drained for months
The top of the wax was lovely but it had what looked like propolis adhered to the under surface.
How to remove that?
