    I put mine in the washing machine on hot water and the light/gentle cycle with no soap or bleach. After they run I hang them to dry. They get a lot cleaner than just rinsing. I'm sure someone is...

    That will be interesting to see, for sure. I am guessing you have it isolated so you know what is doing. I hope it works well

    Just to clarify what I am saying. I am not saying it's ok to be sloppy and dirty. It's not ok to have leaky, saggy and spliced up multiple type tubing runs. I'm not saying it's ok to boil bad sap, do...

    I'll add a little opinion for contemplation. First, I have all 3/16" lines and anywhere from 15-30 taps each. None of my laterals have optimum set ups as to fall and length. I only have two that have...

    it's easiest to just break off a twig at each hole and swab it out. Takes maybe an extra 30 seconds. Actually, I usually break one off as I'm walking to the next tap and have it ready

    You will have time to run your tubing. a couple days work and you'll have it. Two hints, if someone hasn't already made them. Make a spooler or at least run some pipe through the spool of tubing and...

    again I agree with ennismaple, making syrup in a flue pan alone is flirting with trouble. One thing I do is I use a piece of 3/16 tubing or 5/16 and siphon the nitre out of the bottom of the flues...

    gosh pdiamond I never really timed the difference, I'm guessing I can wait an extra 3-5 minutes. I don't do this until the fire is raging and a bed of coals is established

    I tapped my early taps about two weeks ago. Sugar started at 1.0-1.2 and has been going up steadily. Average is ~1.4, but I had a run yesterday that was 1.8.

    I have some that do that periodically. If I tap them I only do one tap or if they are smaller skip it. Never figured out why it happens, could be a wind shake split it.
