This was our worst year in10 years. Ihave hives with numerous super , only to find several thatI thought were full of honey were almost emty with only smallpatches. Even the better super were capped on either one side or partially capped. Meaning I will have numerous frames that will have high moisture. I will of course check the moisture content in the uncapped frames. My question is what do I do with so many frames of uncapped honey. I normally have a few frames and extract it with the capped frames and have good moisture contect. Should I process those frames separately and feed back, or in some way reduce moisture even though uncapped. Would appreciate any suggestions as I have never had this qaunity before (about 40-50 frames either uncapped or partially uncapped).
Thanks

measure the uncapped honey with a refractometer (fairly inexpensive tool) to see where you actually are.

you can always use several dehumidifier techniques to evaporate the honey after extraction, as many have done before.
