congrats on your colonies making such good progress oneshoo.

if you are not interested in the honey i would consider leaving most of the honey on the hives. sometimes winter drags on and sometimes a wet spring can run a colony low on stores during the spring build up.

you can always take this year's honey off once the nectar starts flowing next spring.

part of the decision making has to do with knowing just how much honey is in the double deeps.

i.e. if the bottom deep is mostly empty and the broodnest is mostly in the upper deep that would change the calculation.
