I took off 4 boxes on the 16th aug 2017, the dewpoint was 16.5. I tried a small dehumidifier to reduce the water content but was not impressed, so every day or so I blew warm conservatory air through the boxes. After a week I got the dewpoint down to 14.5. It went down to 11 on a lot of occasions ( left with the top sealed over night). There were four supers with frames in and I got 84lbs of honey which had a moisture level of 18%. Nicki used Mike's manual extractor, which worked a lot better than i thought.
