    Treeguy, I use sap sacks also and I would like to see a picture of your holders.

    With the temps getting up to around 50 degrees during the days lately, do you have to worry about spoilage? Or are your tanks refrigerated?

    In general the sooner you can get collected sap cooked up the better. Unfortunately I do not yet have my minimum of 100 gallons I like to have to begin a cooking session. I have around 40 gallons collected now. I did not go out and collect last night. With the temperatures dipping down to around 10 deg F tonight what sap is in the buckets and tanks will freeze. It is not easy to pour frozen sap.
