I was just wondering if the birch sap can handle a full boil up to 45 brix? All of my density equipment, (Hydrometers, Refractometers, Hydrotherm) Stop reading around 12-18 or start reading around 45. I wanted to pull the sap off the evaporator at a safe brix to not scorch it and transfer it to my double boiler set up. So if I can take it till it starts to read at 45 that would be ideal but I don't want to scorch it after all of this effort so far. We have about 120 trees tapped and I think I'll finally have enough sap tonight in a 24 hour period to justify cranking up the RO. Boiling .4 sap sucks!
