    Default Eastern Township Quebec 2023

    Good evening,

    Tapping completed. 15 days later then last year and 1month later then 4years ago.

    2days of good windows this week, that will clean the line and check the vacuum.

    I guess Punxsutawney Phil was right!!!!!!!

    Have a nice season and have fun.

    Cheers

    Finally,

    Good start today 100g of sap .. the next 2days should be good. My new Small RO will run hard tomorrow. Saturday will be a good boiling day.

    Sap is barely 2brix…but i tried a small quantity with my new toy and i was able to get 8brix…very anxious to see how my boiling day will be Saturday with that sap on “steroids “..


    Have Fun!

    Cheers

    Good evening,

    Good boiling day… my new RO is fantastic. The intake is installed directly in my incoming box of the evaporator. After 1hr i was able to fire the evaporator.

    The concentrate was directly returned on the other side of the incoming box. I adjusted the flow to run directly in the evaporator will running.

    Now i’m able to boil and skip a day and boil from 8 to 4 . Not bad for an amateur who have fun.

    Cheers

    Good evening,

    Cheers

    Ps. For cleaning i use the same process explained with the RoBucket. That is the most simplified way to rinse it.

    Goos evening,

    Another great day of boiling… , SAP is running normal at just 2brix. But with the RO i run between 7,8 brix to start.

    But the really good part is running in warm SAP the flow is amazing compare to cold SAP.


    Need to work on the 3/16 tomorrow Vacuum is down.

    Have fun!

    Looks good on the Japa 365, pre-seasoned wood, great idea.
    Dave Klish, I recently ordered a 2x6 wood fired evaporator from A&A Sheet Metal which I will be converting to oil fired
    Now have solar, 2x6 finish pan, 5 bank 7x7 filter press, large water jacketed bottler, and tankless water heater.
    Recently bought another Gingerich RO, this one was a 125, but a second membrane was added thus is a 250, like I had.
    After running a 2x3, a 2x6, 3x8 tapping from 79 taps up to 1320 all woodfired, now I'm going to a 2x6 oil fired and a 200-425 taps.

    Good day!

    Freezing rain since yesterday. But no damage yet only small piece all over the place.

    Forecast today mid afternoon is 10c. Starting Monday over 12c everyday and no minus for the next 10 days.

    May be the end. We are in high altitude at 10km of the Maine border.

    Strange weather most of everyone in the area have not reach their normal volume.

    The next 2 days will be probably the last boiling.

    Have a great day
