    Default Finishing sap

    Small operation 2-3 hundred gals sap / year. How long can almost finished sap be stored or collected before final finishing?

    You should bottle finished Syrup right away so it will last indefinitly. Storing sap is a differnt matter. If you keep it out of the sun and cold it will last a few days. Later in the season this gets tougher. I pack around both of my collection tanks with snow during the season.

    With "almost finished" ( 5-6 degrees above boiling point of water) syrup it will keep OK for maybe a week. Keep it cold and maybe 10 days.
    It is still better to finish it ASAP for the best results, like same day or next day.
    Dave Klish about 1320 taps in '15, doing fewer each year, about 450 planned for 2020 (and after?)
