    On my 2x8 SL pans my boiling rate definitely increased going from a brand new Leader oil fired arch (301 Carlin/4 gph nozzle) to a new Silverplate wood fired. Having said that, are you using a Carlin...

    I used a Micro2 this season. For 250 taps on medium vac it was fine. If your taps are not on vac I would go with the single membrane unit. Unless you can store sap for a couple days to get enough to...

    For several years I used an electric releaser with external Goulds pump that pumped uphill about 150 feet or so. It was a rise of about 25 feet I think.

    I had one of Ray's 375's for a couple of years and never had a leak at the pressure hose. I did have a leak at a plastic fitting before it was ever fired up and he replaced it.

    Final tally for me: 91 gallons on 262 taps. About .35 gal per tap. Not the best I have done, but surely better than last year's miserable figure of .15 per tap. Didn't make any off-flavored syrup....
