    I'd say you'll be alright. I keep concentrate in a working bulk tank that is set at 34 degrees. Go get some bags of ice and drop it in. Don't let the temp. climb. It's easier to try and maintain...

    Wow. I didn't know they could do that. Some sort of porcupine abatement program needs to be started, and soon. That's terrible.

    Is it a traditional-looking sugar house? No. Will you enjoy making syrup in it more than trying to boil outside day and night and in all sorts of lousy weather? You betcha.
