    You don't think you added any preservative? I've never had that happen, I don't know what you should do. Personally I'd toss the membrane, maybe some on here know a way to clean it and test to see if...

    Yes, there is a temperature at which you can hold concentrate. Dr Tim posted a chart on that someplace. It all depends on the sugar%. It doesn't need to freeze 1-2 degrees above works well. A friend...

    As I was looking into propane my thought was a 1000 gal tank, then get it filled as it reached about 40%. I'm still concerned that the propane would struggle at lower temperatures.

    How loud is it? That's my biggest concern about going to fuel oil. Because of my concern about the noise I've been thinking propane, tube burners instead but I hear getting enough gas pressure can be...

    For another use I went with Gorilla tape once before. That sold me on it, far better than any other duct type tape I've ever used.
    Glad to say, my Gorilla glue and tape order arrived. Unfortunately...

    Just a guess, but I'd try a high speed (10,000RPM+) and use about 3000 grit to start, finish with 6000 or even 8000 grit.

    My Deer Run 250 was bought as gas engine, when I converted to electric I didn't notice any gph change. I also go from 1.9-2.1% in, 7-8% out in first pass and 11-12% out on recirculate. Doing a true...

    Storage room wasn't an issue, when I built my 16x24 sugarhouse I made a shelf 24' long x 26" deep on one side about 75" off the floor, my walls are 10'. That would have stored over a hundred such...

    I may be mistaken, but I think when Glen did it, he anchored to huge boulders or bedrock outcroppings then got the elevation using very sturdy posts.

    Nice job. Is the tape Gorilla tape? I just picked up that line, along with Gorilla Glue for local sales at my one local venue for Syrup. That order should be here in a few days.

    That pump a submersible well Pump? I hope so, the far cheaper ones for de-watering have an oil in the housing to lubricate them, even a slight leakage in the seals will ruin a lot of syrup.

    I read it as the tank would be 30-40' lower than the sugarhouse, is that correct? If not, I'll answer again and correct my error.

    At such a low cost I may sell some of my 26.5 gal barrels (SS) and buy some more 15 or 16 gal CDL or MES in the future. I don't like packing even 26.5 gal of one grade syrup at one time, but that's...

    Wow, looks like I'm the lowest elevation so far. My sugarhouse is at 432' elevation, the highest tap is about 445'.
    I'm sure others are lower, but not so far in this thread. I know of another who...

    It seems I saw a piece showing Glen Goodrich's new Eden bush where he used 1/4" or even 3/8" guy cable, anchored into huge bolders.

    The 30-40' rise might be a big problem. To do it right, you would want to pump up that distance plus 2%, then be able to maintain the 2% slope without sags all of the way to the sugarhouse.
