    I'm curious what your 2x6 does, too. It's advertised at 20-25 but it seems like it should do better than that.

    Fortunately all of my dealings with Sunrise and Smoky Lake have been very positive.

    I have a divided flat pan now and we are getting between 10 and 12 GPH. It's really hard to get an accurate boil rate count since we are not using a float box and it's difficult to keep a constant...

    Spring peepers out here too. And honey bees and lady bugs and cranes flying over. On track to make 10 gallons. I'm happy with that for our first year. My goal was between 5 and 10. We will probably...

    Thanks Flatpan1. Your rig is very, very nice! I love the design of Mason's divided flat pans. It's great to see his raised flue, too.

    I was just curious about the arch. When I talked to John from...
