Thread: Dead Bees in my honey!

  1. Default

    Well... I tried straining it through a cheese cloth, but it was a little too thick to flow in a way that I was patient enough to handle I did get out the larger chunks of wax and the bees, though there may still be leg or something along with some smaller pieces of flotsam floating around in there somewhere.

    I figure I will go ahead and ferment as is. Hopefully there is nothing in there that poses any danger to either the ferment or myself

    I love the idea of the bee in the bottle.... probably scare too many people off, though. What about a nice piece of honey comb, though? Innocuous enough, and might still draw in a crowd that likes rustic appeal....

    Ah, well.........

    Perhaps its more to the point to ask why is it that Hollywood still casts Brits as the evil ones ? Alan Rickman has a lot to answer for.....

    If you've stabilized and are backsweetening, that's fine. Otherwise you're asking for MEA

    Rubber gloves. Latex might work too.
