It will be interesting so see how many people use the different methods of extracting their honey.

If you select other, please describe your technique.

Thanks for participating.

Somebody chose "scrape the cappings and let it drip out."  How long does THAT take??

I chose other because I do mostly chunk honey.  Cut comb with extracted liquid.

I have a Kelly 20 frame extractor, still dont have a automatic uncapper yet, I do prefer extracting and storing supers with drawn comb to get a bigger yield the following year. I am still wanting this setup so much I can taste it, maybe one day  ;)
THAT's ME TO THE LEFT JUST 5 YEARS FROM NOW!!!!!!!!
