    Default Tapped in Lyndeboro 2/28/07

    Well I'm finally tapped, We sweetened the pans the other night and are now waiting for the big run this weekend. I spent last night scrambling to put together a new control panel for my temperature controllers. I opened up my old panel and 6 mice came running out. They chewed up all the wiring and had a major nest. What a mess.

    Sugar content 2.3% on 2/28/07.

    Chris,

    Sounds like you are having a good year with 600 taps and I assume they are all gravity??
