Ok, simply question, on average what can be expected in weight from a full national super all capped off with honey across 9 frames (or 11 frames).

Anyone willing to give me an average honey weight from one full super?

Cheers

I only extracted the one so was able to accurately weigh it, I suppose there were places they could have drawn it out futher to make 30lbs, but not many. I'll speak to them about it :)

Thirty pounds is about right. 40 from a Langstroth.
