Once the supers are pulled from the hive for winter and uncapped what is the best way to store through the winter months.? Thanks

I stack clean dry supers with a telescoping top on the top and bottom. I then place a moth cake in the closed up stack. Next spring I will open and air them out for a few hours before placing them on the hives.

This is my first year to have supers to put up, so what I did may not bee correct but, after extracting I put supers out and let the bees clean them.  Then I bring them back inside honey house to make sure they are dry.  Inspect them, put 10 frames to the super and put as many as will fit in a 55 gal trash bag and zip tie it.
