    Default Flat VS Divided

    Hello all Just a big shout out to the M.T. site I caught the bug 3 years ago and thanks to all of you for different ideas what a wealth of knowledge you all are I am currently batch boiling on a 31 by 48 modified v bottom flat pan with a hood and parallel flow preheater Im getting around 20 gph right now I was thinking about switching to a divided flat pan and was wondering if anyone knows what the difference in boil rates would be current pan 16 gauge new one would hopefully be 20 or 22 gauge

    chester, ma


    That's pretty sweet for ten square feet. What is a v bottom flat pan?

    2016: Homemade arch from old woodburning stove. 2 steam tray pans. 6 taps on buckets. 1.1 galls
    2017: Same homemade evaporator, but souped up. Still 2 steam tray pans. 15 taps on buckets. 4.5 galls
    2018: Same setup. Limited time. 12 taps and short season. 2.2 gallons
    2019: Still very limited time. Downsized to 7 taps and a short season. 1.8 gallons
    2020: 9 taps, new Mason 2x3 XL halfway through season, 2 gallons
    2021: 18 taps. Mason 2x3 XL, 4.5 galls
