OK,I've got one great hive on 3 supers,1 nuc no queen.
having been into bees today found 8 queen cells unsealed,I've put 2 into the nuc,moved the queen into a new nuc with two frames and shook 4 frames of bees in from her hive rest of frames on new foundation,I've left 2 queen cells in the parent hive,I will go into next week and take one out.
What do I feed the new nuc on with queen in is it 1lb sugar 1 pint water or is it 2lb sugar 1 litre water.
 
It's only bucket science, so either will do. I mix by volume in a preserving pan. Equal volumes of hot water to sugar.
