    Made 40 gallons yesterday. Flavor was heading into the realm of what I call "malty". Sap flow at the releasers stopped, and by the time we finished boiling by chasing the sweet with permeate, the syrup wasn't filtering very well. Done Done Done..........

    shipped another load this morning and got the word this afternoon we are shutting it down. still getting a good deal of sap but quality was gone.
    looks like about 6.3lbs/tap or .57gal/tap.
    next week looks like some cooler nights, I wonder if some of the real cold spots can hang on.
    ready to yank spouts and move on!
