    Tap every couple years for the past 10. No big setup. Small homemade wood boiler. Just make enough for family consumption.

    Good to hear! I got my first 6 in on Saturday and am expecting to have 15 or so ready to start boiling this evening. **** temps and no snow mean I have to boil midweek...
    2016 - 5 taps - soda bottles and water jugs - boiled over a firepit - 3 quarts
    2017 - 15 taps - 5g buckets - barrel evaporator - "Bessie" - 2.85 gallons
