It can take anywhere from twenty minutes to over two hours (depending on the temperature and the viscosity of the honey) to drain a Flow Frame.
It is OK to leave the frame draining overnight, provided it is secure from insects and nocturnal animals.
When you have finished draining the honey remember to return the frames to the “cell closed” position (insert the Flow Key into the top slot, and turn 90 degrees downwards), so that the bees can seal the split cells and recommence filling them with nectar, which they turn into honey.
