    The regulations on caskets/vaults etc. are quite variable from place to place and have changed considerably over time. Hard to say exactly what might have been done fifty or even twenty years ago. ...

    You can use pH strips or simply put in baking soda until it stops fizzing. In this case, using too much is not a problem.

    Some of what controls sap sugar content (SSC) is genetic, some is environmental. Genetics play a role in dictating the maximum SSC, and most environmental factors tend to reduce the level from...

    As Super Sapper says, you can add fresh sap to the sweet. It will darken the product. If your fryer is aluminum, I'd suggest transferring it into something different while it is stored. Acid...

    Formaldehyde is readily dissolvable in water, but as said, unless the water table is high it is unlikely to rise into the rooting zone. Over time it would become very diluted if there were any water...

    We've seen several instances where producers will build a small insulated box out of foamboard that is just large enough for the releaser and a candle. Light the candle only as needed. Seems to...

    Good luck Ken....you'll know better next spring. Culverts can be a real pesky problem that can take a while to solve (if ever).

    Treat maple sap as it it were milk. Would you be comfortable drinking it after it sat out for a few days? Maybe...if the temperatures were really cold. Probably not if the temperatures were...

    Absolutely not. Carbon filtration of sap or syrup would be illegal according to the definition of pure maple syrup.

    Secondly, please don't take my earlier suggestion as gospel in any way. Could...

    A negative swab test would be an indicator that the lead level were low enough to be undetected. It is unlikely that there would be any lead in the SS pans themselves anyhow, so not sure why anyone...

    Galvanized, English Tin, or Ternplate can contain lead. Not typical these days. SS is not coated in evaporators. Solder cannot be coated unfortunately, except by niter.

    In practice, the trees at the top (20' of drop) will get about 12-18" Hg vacuum (assuming the system is leak-free and the slope is > 5% so friction is not too high). The last tap at 5' drop will get...

    At those highest trees you'll get maximum vacuum. At the lower trees you'll get less. This assumes you keep the tubing system very tight (leak-free).

    Vacuum is proportional to the height from the taphole to where sap exits the 3/16” tubing. That assumes your slope is good enough to counteract fri til all forces.

    Yes, even if it is only a vacuum line it should be sloped properly to drain one direction or the other...no saps or dips.
