    Making some wort today, and then noticed a few bees hanging around.
    I shoooo-ed them off, but they kept coming back.
    When I added the hops to the boil, they sort of hung back.
    At 3rd hops there were no bees.

    I found this interesting.

    I generally get the odd wasp during the boil never any bees.

    On Saturday I found a bee on my robobrew false bottom after pumping wort to my fermenter, I saw it hang around earlier then I guess it got too close.

    I always get them hanging around the boil. To the point I have found one at the bottom of a fermenter.

    I find them whenmost attracted to the boil when doing a high gravity boil.
