    I had bottled your syrup in glass and keep it in the cold room. Like Brad, my syrup was remarkably consistent in color this year. I don't keep track of the tastings anymore because there are too many people too fast. I have them taste 3 or 4 different runs (this year they varied from LT 52 to LT 28) and emphasize that they will be able to distinguish a difference. And all of them can. Their descriptions...well I'm going to make a video next year because the facial expressions of disbelief are priceless.

    Ok, don't count my taps until I pull them. 780, a couple more than I thought. Made 210 gal. Sap volume was 135% of average but SC was 80%. Color was 10 points darker than average. I'm pretty sure I had some anthracnose last summer and the foliage color was off. Hopefully it is an aberration!
