  1. Thus the wise hobbiest's use of double 3/4 brood......good for the bees, easy on the back....
  2. I'd suggest the water bath wasn't hot enough or long enough. Dunno about Manuka, but my Kanuka once melted stays liquid about a fortnight.

  4. Personally I think this to be far more likely if bees produced usable amounts of protein. Sugar/carbs are everywhere.

  12. Disappointing ? Why ? Surely you knew when going down the OA path you were stepping into the realm of a relatively new and still developing form of treatment ?
  13. Well no, I've no idea if this is a price list or what...
