Well, you knew I'd have to make another one..... grin

This time I've done a video on how to harvest honey via crush and strain.  It includes the use of the straining bucket so I decided to post it on the equipment usage part of the forum....

Enjoy,

Cool.  Everyone has their own methods for the details.  I don't have that many details.  I just cut it into the top bucket of a double bucket strainer and crush it with my bare hands.  It goes quite quickly doing it that way, but my forearms ache after doing a lot of it.

Ya'll are so kind to make supportive comments.  I keep making these because I had to make up how to do if for myself.  All the beekeepers I know in Atlanta use extractors, so I had to read Michael's website and then make up my own way.

I'm doing one on cut comb/chunk honey tonight and tomorrow - so we'll see how that one goes.

Yes, nice job indeed, thanks for sharing.  Seems kinda trivial when someone describes it in words.  But seeing it in action really makes me appreciate my extractor. tongue

    Neat.  I never thought of setting it outside.  So simple...

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

Setting what outside?  Anything you set outside with honey will be overwhelmed by bees...

I think he's referring to the bucket with the crushed honey and comb in the filter.  My bucket came with a top and I often put the top on the bucket and a brick and set it on my garden walkway to filter.  The heat helps the honey move quickly through the set of three filters and the honey is not accessible to the bees because it's in the closed bucket.
