6 medium frames capped on both sides will yield about 1.5 gallons of honey.
Robbed six, beautiful medium frames of spring honey from one of the hives over the weekend. The timing was right and I just cleaned up the extractor on loan to me from a friend. To my surprise, I got about 1.5 gallons of honey.
The bees were in a great mood. When I opened the hive, I thought I heard them humming in unison, come, take this honey, for it is good and we'll make more.
The honey was an off-white yellow and very clear, and very thick. The whole family had spoons and we filled our gift jars and put the stores away. I can't wait until all the hives are in full production and I hope for a late fall harvest.
