    We did not have a vacuum gauge there last year. We could do as you suggest, would lose a couple taps doing so. Moving the collection tote would also make it a little harder to access. We pump from...

    I believe what Dr. Tim described is what we witnessed on our 1 run of 3/16" we tried last year. We have 31 taps on a moderate slope.....40' of drop over 500' of line which is an 8% slope that is a...

    Conversely, when we upgraded our evaporator it made drinking beer easier. Went from wood to oil so boiling is kind of boring (not complaining- that's what it is when things are going good). So,...

    I'd try it with 3/16" laterals and 5/16"drops. Make a manifold for each 3/16" line to hook up to the Shurflo. That will help isolate lines if you want to check leaks or narrow down any issues. ...

    It's kind of neat to track as much information as you can. Looking back on the records 10 years down the road is kind of neat. You'll probably find that the one thing that remains constant when...

    I really like the CDL auto twister we have that darkmachine is probably referring to. I'm sure they all make one. I would think with a drill you would spend more time trying to go slow as to not...

    4008 and 4048 are the most common pumps used. We run a 4048. For parts, it depends on what you are hooking them up to. Are you putting it into mainline or individual laterals of 3/16” or 5/16”? ...

    I'm kind of partial to Gritty's Maple Porter with our syrup in it. Ice cream and a rib or chicken marinade ingredient are next.

    Try the classifieds on here and Craigslist. With it being a down year for most, shouldn't have any problem selling bulk syrup.

    We never did it but talked about it. Our plan was going to be to have 2 sets and swap them out every year. The unused set would get a good cleaning and reused every other year. There will...

    Our 2x6 evaporator runs like crap on #2 oil. We bought it used from a guy who owns an oil company in VT. Clearly, they have the nozzle size and pressures set to run on K-1. We have a stack temp of...

    Without looking at it I would have guessed 1" or 1.25" for mainline. Is it just 1 mainline, 1200 ft. in length or several short mainlines? How far is it from your pump to the mainlines?

    Yes but generally your dry line is a larger diameter than your wet line. Might want to check out the Cornell Book on vacuum to make sure you have things sized correctly. Or provide some of the bush...

    We also take ours apart. While apart, we put new diaphragms in so they're new for start of next season. Cheap enough at $20 each.

    Not a lot of personal experience with the CDL 600 RO's but have been around them enough. Buddy of ours has a 600 with an upgraded 7.5 HP pump (from 5 hp) and runs 3 posts to get 16-19% in one pass. ...

    Just keep an eye on the plugs. They can loosen up with temperature changes and slush/ice pushing against them, if real cold. We clean our float box every boil, leave it on and plug it at the inlet...
