    I hope everyone has a great, safe holiday. Enjoy the time with family and friends, it's too hot to bottle more syrup today.

    Low key family reunion and now its back to reconfiguring my tank farm. I moved and elevated my permeate tanks and now will have 5-275 cage tanks. Plan is to be able to pump right from them into the evap with a 1 1/4" line so I can fill the entire rig in about 5 minuets. I also made room for for planned 1,000 gallon Dairy cool refrigerated concentrate tank.
    Hope everyone was safe and reflects on the great holiday we just celebrated.

    Thanks. I hope your recovery is going well.

    It definitely is too hot to bottle, or make candy, or make lollipops, or check the bees. Now, I just need to start following my own advice.
