It looks like I'm going to harvest a 10 frame medium(Illinois) super and 4 medium frames of comb honey,----14 frames total. About how much honey is this in lbs. or pints?

Thanks for the "get back" Devdog! Lets see, 1.5 lbs per pint mason jar so thats about 18-20 pints or so.

I just pulled and packed 4 medium frames and got 6 mason jars, and 2 and 1/2 large honey bears. I figured it was about 12 -13 pounds. The comb was a little bulging on two of the frames. Anyone know if it the color of the honey makes any difference in the weight? This batch (my first :D) was very light in color.
