    I use solid clay bricks in my diy barrel evaporator. A few of them do have cracks in them after a few years but big deal. I'd try it, worst that could happen is it doesn't work and you have to...

    Swingpure, I wouldn't sweat about too expensive of a pan if I was you. Once/if you get your RO up and running and fine tune your wood/draft to get a HOT fire you'll be sitting just fine. It doesn't...

    You should have some full bags when you get back. It ran all night last night. Some of the bags were just about over the top tonight. But some also had very little, which you can expect this time of...

    Yep, and make sure the fire has plenty of draft underneath it(natural is fine). That sap should be boiling violently with your setup. Looking good and keep after it!

    I'm between Neillsville and Greenwood. I tapped on Saturday, not enough sap to even collect yet, a few bags might have a couple quarts in them. I have 120 taps on mostly red maples.

    Lots of backyarders go 'past' syrup when boiling, and then add sap or distilled water when finishing elsewhere. Saves a lot of propane/electric/time.

    Do you have any other syrup makers in your area that would buy your excess sap if you get some bigger runs than you can keep up with?

    And if you do end up with a small amount of niter in your own personal syrup, big whoop. Best thing I've done for a hobbyist is go to the settling method for ridding the syrup of niter.

    Yep, you can throw a lot of money at this 'hobby' if you want. Or you can keep it simple and have fun (and spend a lot more time boiling).

    Yeah keep the pans dropped down in. It will boil a LOT better. You'll get some scorching on the sides but it doesn't affect the taste like you think it would.
