Hey, most distances are bigger than the state of Connecticut.....of course Califorina has a coast line about the length of the entire East Coast......Size envy???? Naaaaaaaaaaaa, it's just easier to get around in CT.You know, Al the distance between San Luis Obispo County and Sacramento County is bigger than the whole State of Connecticut.
Actually the cappings are what I'm looking for. Most bee keepers around here hoard the cappings......seperate the wax from the honey and seel the wax. I like to make my meads with as raw a honey as I can find.....and the cappings are about as raw as it gets.With honey the shipping cost usually makes it not worth it.
All beekeepers have "cappings" and while some make mead with it, most don't, and you could get raw local honey cheap that way. One of the things I want to do to pay for the help I'm getting here is to start a batch next week from cappings, complete with photos and this forum's advice.
So, if it works out, that would be a source of very cheap local honey for you all. Stay tuned.
You might want to get rid of some that you've already got going before you do, as from the looks of it you have no floorspace for any more carboys.Exactly! But you're right...an accurate reading might be difficult. It'll be interesting if I can ever find what I'm looking for.
