I think the confusion comes in because you called the brood deeps 'supers' when you said you would be 'bottom-supering'. Most (but not all) people tend to not call the deep brood boxes supers from what I observe.I am following Michael Bush's advice from earlier in this thread:
"I would add it below unless you have some drawn comb to use for ladders in top one." - MB.
Did I misunderstand it?
You & MB were definitely talking about brood deeps, not honey supers:
>1) Should I start with 1 deep of 10 frames of drawn comb, and add a deep of foundationless frames above it?
