    I have a question for you fine gentlemen, do you all use the stubbies to place the CV's into when you tap? Can you just place the CV into the tree without the stubby?
    2004 - 2012 2x3 flat pan 25 to 60 taps
    2012 2x3 new divided pan w/draw off 55 taps
    2018 - didn't boil surgery - bought new evaporator
    2019 new SML 2x4 raised flue high output evap. 65 taps
    made 17 gal syrup
    2020 - going for 100 taps bags and buckets

    Two choices (for plastic spouts in general).

    1. Use a one-piece spout where the spout is put in the tree and connected to the tubing. After the season is done it is pulled from the taphole, cut off and a new spout put on (before the next season). The CV2 (one-piece spout) applies in this situation.

    2. Drill a taphole, put the spout adapter in the tree and tap it in. Connect a stubby to the tubing (if not already there). Mate the stubby to the spout adapter and tap it in lightly or twist it in securely. The original CV spout adapter (black) or newer style (clear-poly with ball in tip) CV spout adapter works this way.
