    Default Thawing

    The last couple days have allowed some thawing. Still some ice, but I was able to start collecting last night. After today I should be mostly thawed out. Most of the trees I got to were running last night. I will be boiling this weekend after all. The sap won't go bad as long as there is ice. Next week is looking to get much warmer, so I'm glad I'll be able to collect it all this week. I too am limited to the weekends for boiling. The fire will be lit tonight.
    2011 15 taps.
    2012 40 taps.
    2013 100 taps, all sap sacks. Custom built 2x6 wood fired evaporator and sugar shack.
    2014 125 taps.
    2015 145 taps.

    So you boil at night? What are you boiling on and how long does it take you? Last week we boiled down about 80 gallons on our outdoor fire pit, which I expanded so we could put more pots. We ended up with about a gallon and a half of syrup. Trying to figure out a better set up for next year. A lot going on this year with getting bees in a couple weeks and our second flock of chickens
