I harvested my first batch of honey today from the flow frame. I had opened the hive up about a month ago and it looked like they had filled a couple of frames, so today they were the frames that I emptied.
I notice that the honey is quite runny which I take it as meaning that it was harvested too early and there is still too much water in it.
so, two questions…
1 - Is there any way I can reduce the water content without destroying the taste? For example, if I sit is in the oven on a very low temperature for a few hours?
2 - How do you know when to harvest honey with the flow frames? I don’t want to have to open the hive up to inspect, and looking down the gaps between the frames from the back access panel doesn’t let me see much (even when I shine a torch in).
