    I'm not sure if there's anyone I would want to ask, but assuming there was, how would this work? I mean, there's 2" in the pan when I shut down the evaporator, and that reduces to 1" over the next...

    I'm really glad several people raised that issue. If I left 3/4 of an inch in the pan and took off for the week, and then came back a week later to start a boil and found a tarry sludge stuck to the...

    Hey Dave,

    As I mentioned in the post right above yours (sorry, it was long, so I don't blame you for skipping it) I plan for 15 taps this year, and I have no electricity. I have the potential for...

    Once a week boil on divided pan

    This will be my first full season using my new Mason 2x3. Previously I did batch boils on a small homemade evaporator.
