    If you want to draw both AOF and AUF from the same blower, you likely have at least 2 issues. That blower is too small, and your plumbing is too small.

    Based on everything I read about bags, you'd be better off buying more bags unless you would be able to empty the bags 2 or 3 times each day and when the sap flows all night, maybe at 1A.M. too

    I didn't start until 2003, after I sold my business and got bored, too much free time. It was fun until I ended up on a blood thinner, that took the fun out of it.

    Heat it back to 218 or so, and cool it, then taste it. It might be OK or it could be sour. Don't leave syrup in a bucket for more than maybe 3-4 week max, and try to keep it below 40F even then.

    I never compared them, not that scientific. I do however have about 25% of my taps on each side, not specifically directly north, south, east or west, but sort of in those general directions.

    I tapped a 5" tree back in 2005 thinking I'd be culling it out the next summer. That tree got tapped every year for about 12 years before I cut it for firewood. It gave sap every year but I never...

    Can't see it well enough, but it could be mold or even defoamer. If defoamer, you used too much. Pick it out with a spoon, the feel it between your finger tips, if it feels waxy it's defoamer.

    I believe that the holes sealing up are related to how you do it, if you have vacuum and run the vacuum from the first sap flow to the end of the season, they will not seal up. If you don't have...

    Check with Grimm Maple Products, (grimmreaper) on the MT, last I knew he had one for sale. He bought it, then tried it on other brands of tubing and decided he didn't like it. That was 2-3 years ago.
