Hello, just a quick question, how much honey could you get out of 1 super frame? Hoffman spaced, non castelated. Fully capped.
Thanks.

I extracted 1 particular super this spring which was an 11 frame, newly drawn. Averaged 770g per frame but the end frames were not fully drawn so perhaps a little conservative (hot air de-capped so no capping losses in that figure)

8 and 3 nucs...it's swarm time...
We got 15Kg out of two supers, so about 7.5 KG per super...or 750g per frame (like Rosti's, our end ones weren't complete)
