Any members here process their Heather Honey using a screw press, if so what are your thoughts on how effective it is. Last season I used a hand press and found there was still loads of honey left in the wax.

I was told by a beefarmer it turns the heather honey black.
 
Works well but its not a finished product. Filtering is a PITA. Do it when warm off the hive and filter through a large sieve (50cm diameter) is how we do it. Just about bearable.
