    So I finished up my near syrup last night from last week Fridays boil and have maybe a little over 3 gallons from the 86 gallons of sap I boiled. Syrup was back to amber compared to the dark syrup from the week before. Not sure if my dad boils different than I did Friday but he boiled the batch that was dark. I know there could be lots of variables that effect the color. Next year I need to invest in a decent pan instead of the buffet pans. Looking at the weather for Merrill area and could maybe get another week or 2 out of it but running out of wood and have about 7 gallons of syrup so far and what ever we get from this week. So it has been a great year for my 25 taps compared to last year when it was a struggle to get the 4 gallons I did.

    This past weekend collected 53 gallons, made 1.5 gal of Syrup. We pulled the 25 taps, now just need to bottle the 4.5 gal I have ready from the last couple weeks. Was a great season should finish with about 8 gals bottled which is double what we did last year (22 taps). Ran out of dry wood stacked, so season came to an end at the perfect time.
