    Coffee and then Maple sap. I quit drinking alcohol 31 years ago. This keeps me out of trouble.

    Since I boil solo I like to stay a awake.... 2 liter bottle of Coke is always handy, occaional sap tea from middle channel and plenty of water. If friends stop by the beer may come out, but I sip cause a burnt pan makes a bad impression.

    That's about the time I started. But usually not in the sugarhouse.

    I learned a lot when I was stationed in Germany 84-86. 1 Liter mugs of German beer tasted real good. 20 years old and a couple Liters of German beer, all the ladies were beautiful. And yes, we drank it warm if we had it in the barracks.
    2016- 32 taps, 3 1/2 gallons
    2017- 150 taps, 13 gallons after building an evaporator
    2018- goal is 240+ taps. 20+ gallons.
