For those of you using this method, do you or how do you deal with reversing of the brood chambers in spring? I want to use this method but do not know if there is another way to accomplish getting the queen/brood down to the lower level with different frame sizes.

Thanks in advance.

I seldom reverse. I checkerboard my brood frames and practice an open brood nest. I add more supers in May. Then in late June the queen has moved down into the lower boxes and top supers are mostly honey.

I would like to overwinter in a single brood box topped with a single medium super. Sometimes I have two mediums and sometimes I have two brood boxes.
