    According to that page, no. But who knows where that info comes from. You'd probably need to call the manufacturer to be sure.

    There was a post on facebook to a similar effect. Many people chimed in who had had the same experience.

    A&A metal shop in PA shows a 2x3 hood for $170 I'm the most recent price list I've seen. Even it's it's double that, it's cheap. They sell stainless steam stack also. They have a facebook page now...

    Heck, even with 50 taps I'd still rather use a 2x6 than anything smaller. You get shorter than 6' and it just seems like a lot goes out the stack.

    I liked the CDL signatures that I ran this year. Agreed on the angle not being great, but they sealed nicely.

    I will say though that I used H2O innovations semi rigid as my drop lines, and during...

    Correct, no trick. If you've been hot water bathing your canning jars, you don't need to do that with the flasks. You don't need to do it with canning jars either for that matter.

    I don't have...

    Do you have a gear pump? I ask because I also have a d&g 7". Mine has an electric diaphragm pump. After I finish filtering syrup and then suck some sap through, I leave the pump run for a couple...

    You can do that. Are you trying to bottle the same night you're cooking? If so, ideally you'd have some type of heated bottling unit. You could filter through the press right off the rig and into...

    I waited until we were making over 200 gallons a year to buy a press. All gravity through orlon before that. All I can say is, why did I wait so long!? I love my press!!

    It's probably more than...

    CDL sells the Zap-bac spout with silver in the plastic. Supposed to be good for 3 seasons I think. There's threads on the subject on here. I don't think they're allowed in organic production, and I...

    Talked to another dealer who said I was barking up the wrong tree. Suggested I'd need to heat elsewhere, then filter into the canner and that the canner wouldn't heat syrup. She did admit that they'd...

    Just spoke to Jim at CDL Wisconsin. He was of the opinion that I shouldn't use a water jacketed canner for reheating. Said it was only designed for maintaining temp. Even the dual element 220volt...

    Thank you, that's very helpful.

    Also, is there a reasonably priced container option for bulk storage? I'm not super keen on hot packing plastic. I imagine stainless barrels are the best, but I would imagine they're not particularly...

    I think this is probably the direction I should go.

    Can anyone using a water jacket canner with a 220 volt element share their experience in how long it takes to heat syrup? The one I got a quote...

    Thanks Dave! If my dealer won't work with me on returning this, I'll probably go that route.

    Switched from the 12 gauge to a Ruger 10-22 with a scope this year. Wear it over my shoulder while replacing taps or drops. Got a bunch during setup and had almost no squirrel chews during the season.

    The finisher I bought is a GBM. It's locally made I think. It has 2 Bayou Classic burners under it. Just big round burners, not tube burners. It's 2'X4' and maybe 8" tall. I don't see where they...
  22. What do I need to heat syrup for bottling? Finisher? thanks

    Currently I draw syrup off my cooker a little light (around 30 degrees Baume). I cool it in stainless cans then transfer to buckets. Once I start making some darker syrup and get caught up on other...

    Those darned shurflo pumps are the best thing since sliced bread. I don't ever see 25" at my manifold, but I'll get 22" during a good run. Meant to plumb some recirculation lines this year, but it...
