I have a modest suburban apiary. This season produced roughly 30 nucs and 500 pounds of honey. The issue is how to improve the efficiency of processing the cappings. I use the rendered wax for sale, for making body balm, and for coating plastic frames--so I don't want to eliminate it altogether. I use a 9 frame Brushy Mountain radial extractor. It has the tangential baskets for extracting deep frames. At present I let gravity work on the cappings overnight in the cappings tank and then spread them out for the bees to clean up. It works ok---but am looking to improve. Has anyone tried the cappings bags that can be placed in the baskets that wring out the honey from the wet cappings? Or have another idea/advice? Thanks.
