Is this a very big colony-?? Then yes QE OUT ( always for winter ) and then place the super of feed directly onto the brood bos- but if not a big colony then I would remove the super - have just the brood box and give syrup feed for them to store within the brood box.
If it is a very cold winter they may not go up to get this super stores and you are losing heat having it there.
But others may differ in opinion :blush5:
