It is best to warm the honey frames to around 25 to 30 degrees celsius before extraction to make it flow from the comb.
Use the uncapping fork to uncap the cells or use the uncapping knife after heating it up in boiling water.
Once uncapped, lie the frame face down on a rack over a clean food tray to allow the honey to drain from the cells.
Store the honey in the pail with the honey gate. Any wax or debris will tend to float to the top. Once it is full or you have completed extraction let it out through the honey gate into the other drum while filtering it with the honey strainer.
Once the pail with the honey gate is completely emptied and cleaned out, put the filtered honey back in it. Allow it to settle for a few hours to let any air bubbles go to the top.
Then using the honey gate, pottle your honey!
Ensure wherever you do this, it is bee proof!
