    Default Looking for a new hobby evaporator

    Hey all,

    Couldn’t boil last year, so sold my evaporator. Looking for a new one for the upcoming season. I usually do between 30-50 taps. Recommendations?

    check out the lapierre small vision evaporators. i have the 18x60 for a couple of years now, great little unit, gets 15 to 17 gal per hour.

    You can you thru here in the classified ads or check with a local maple supply store. Smoky Lake makes a real nice hobby evaporator in either the starcat or dauntlas model. The big problem you are going to have right now is that most of the suppliers are backed up and may not be able to provide anything for the upcoming season.
