    I'm not surprised that it doesn't have the capacity to overtake the vacuum. My 1/2 hp extractor pump is rated for 175 feet of head.

    Yup, they are huge. I have about 400 taps on these with another 50 trees or so untapped. The leased property is about 600 to 700. Here's a couple more pictures.

    I would say that most trees have a drip edge of at least 20 ft and up to 30 ft measured from the center to the outermost branches (40 to 60 edge to edge). So the spacing varies but is probably about...

    I don't see why it wouldn't work with 1 1/4 discharge. It sounds like a lot of pump setup. How are you moving the pump around?

    The other thing i do during the bottling process is to mark them with the year and the boil number on the bottom of the bottle. For example - 20-9 would be the 9th boil in 2020. This inventory...

    We lay them on side. I think it's good practice and it's hard to argue that it takes too much time as the next bottle under the spigot takes a minute or so to fill. There's also time to tip a few up...

    Throw in a couple collar or rafter ties for good measure. Plus make sure your gable ends are structurally connected to the top plate supporting the rafters.

    There's a few things to consider.

    First, if you have a sink with plumbing then it sounds like you wonder insulation, and heat.

    Second, I would wait to insulate until next year then you'll...

    I've never seen anything like that. Maybe there's a crack leaking out snowmelt from above that's freezing. Try checking the sugar.

    And I would tap it.
