    Nothing fancy here. 1500’ vac line to woods is too small. Except for small (50 tap) new line I added this year newest drops are about 7 years old. Most of my 30p laterals are close to 20 years old.

    I see you have a 3*10 inferno? Max flue oans? How does that handle 15k taps? What's your concentrate level? Best we can get is about 35-45 gph syrup production. Just curious about your setup
