    Its been a year since the last post on this thread. Time to revive it before I'm done for the season.

    All you potential late night boilers it's time to post up here and give a status.

    This will be our last boil for the season the day has been good pulled in a hundred and five gallons on 49 taps. We're finishing the season with 550 plus gallons of sap it looks to be close to 11 gallons of syrup. I have already started cleaning the buckets my hands are pruned.

    Tapper, our last boil of the season too tonight. Collected about 100 gallons of the hards tonight and pulled the taps. Have the Mason chugging right along using up the sap, if all stays well should run out of sap about 02:00. Another season in the bag, didn't end up to be too bad after all. Hope you have a good last boil.

    Thanks MapleMounder. I think we may finish the same time. Thought the season was over when the warm spell happened but the trees kept on giving. The buds broke two weeks ago but has not affected the syrup, thankfully. Banner year for us. Already planning the upgrades.
