    That's the beauty of maple, the sugar as long as nothing got into it that should not be there, the sugar is not ruined. Thin it back and make something great with it.

    Also make sure your test instrument is accurate. Make note that a hydrometer can be knocked off by dropping it into the test cup. It must always be lowered gently.

    Dividers are far better, but they need to be tight at the bottom and sealed. For that lead free solder is fine. If the person who would add the dividers is not familiar with either SS soldering (or...

    What size is your WF Mason? When you put that vent near the peak, you may be better if the fan on that is either variable speed or multi speed. That way you can adjust as needed depending on the...
