    I have 12 taps and collected 20 gallons today. I use milk jugs and they have been overflowing...first thing this morning I got 9 gallons, lunchtime another 5, and then another 6 before heading to bed. I boiled down 30 today with another 20 waiting. Not counting this run, I have already made over a gallon of syrup.

    I'm guessing its a pretty good year, considering its my first year.

    I think the reds vary just like sugars do. I dont test individual trees but I have 48 taps in red, 2 in sugars, and 1 in a silver and the sap tested 2.3% in the tank using my sap hydrometer. Much higher than last years %. I'm sure the numbers will change but so far so good. I hope you all have a great season, good luck!
