I have learned candle pouring, its fun and very messy.
Not quite as messy as making salves and lip balms...
While we still crush and strain, we also have some hives that we spin, what I have learned from this is I waste a whole lot less product. It is a much cleaner product, more honey is removed from comb, wax is easier to process, while I lean to liking foundation-less, there is much to be said for spinning which means I need to learn to be ok with foundations.
The Flow Hive.
We bought a Flow Hive first round, despite the fact we both have serious doubts strictly because it reminds us of Ross Rounds and well, Ross Rounds. Ours went up on a bustling hive a couple months back and only last weekend was there massive activity. Fingers crossed! Even if its as awesome as we hope, no, you will not catch me opening a valve to pour some honey on my pancakes.
