We had several supers that the bees just didn’t want to cap and I was worried they would start consuming it, as we are now well into a dearth. I pulled them and sure enough, the refractometer says the moisture content is high. I rigged up a fan dryer contraption (see pic) that appears to have already lowered the MC by several tenths of a percent in a couple days. I’m going to give it a week of drying and stirring each day and see what the moisture content ends up being in the end. I will report back with my findings.
