    Default Propolis solutions - 150g = 160-420 pounds profit for you from your own propolis

    Hello everyone,

    You send me 150g of your best quality ground propolis.

    You recieve either:
    25x20ml brown glasses with drop insert RRP 10 pounds per glass = 250 pounds income

    (should be about 20% propolis solution measurement result included in shipment).
    or optionally
    40*20ml brown glasses with drop insert containing UN FOA recommended propolis honey solution RRP 15 pounds per glass = 600 pounds income

    Cost propolis solution 90 pounds (includes shipping)
    Cost propolis honey solution 180 pounds (includes shipping)

    Propolis processing time 3 weeks + shipping time.
    10ml glasses also available.
    IM me for further info!

    When you say "best ground propolis " what exactly do you mean?
    I have a good few ounces of propolis waiting to be processed but I imagine even after being in storage for a while it's still too tacky to grind.

    hi mbc
    best means no splinters, dead bee carcasses, mostly propolis, not wax - photo of mine ready for harvestPP ready for harvest.JPG.
    As long as it is still aromatic there is still some life in it. To grind it, put it in the deep freeze first (it doesnt have to be dust but the more surface area the better the solution yield). I store mine in the deep freeze to keep it fresh anyway.

    Thanks Calum, I'll seriously consider sending you some propolis to process on the new year.

    Following this with interest. I may invest in some propolis screens for next year.

    The propolis screens sold by a Newburgh-based outfit are ~3 each (National) ... and look to me exactly like the "insect mesh" glass fibre stuff available from eBay for ~2.5 per square metre. I use the latter for travel screens, and it gets thoroughly clogged if I leave it in situ. There may be better ways to collect the stuff though ...

    Hi
    USE FOOD GRADE! it's the same matting cheesemongers use to drain cheese. You don't want chemicals from cheap plastics in any of your products! Based on the income it is worth spending a little extra to ensure unquestionably good quality. After all what's 50p when you are earning hundreds of pounds?
    To harvest just roll up the mat and freeze it. Wring the frozen mat in a bucket and the frozen propolis will just flake off.

    I can source that if you can't find it but ask a cheesemaker!
