    Hi, new hobby sugar bush here. Tapped 35 trees in our first season. Made about 10 qts of syrup and a batch of thick butter(stirred to long). We made a barrel evaporator and had some fun in our sugar shanty. Starting to cut the wood for a 12x16 sugar shack for next year. Had a lot of fun with my family and friends. Plan for 60 to 70 taps next year. Max will be 80 taps as we bought a CDL classic 2x4 evaporator.
    I have enjoyed the info we picked up from this site.
    Cheers
    Bart

    Joined here last spring to browse everything. I dont have a single maple on my property but my mom has 4 which are about 10-15 inches in diameter. My aunt recently moved to a house in an old urban neighborhood and has two enormous maples which I plan to tap. Last year I was able to get about 30 ounces of syrup. I had no idea what I was doing and two trees really didn't produce anything. I'm hoping I just missed the run. Always looking for more trees in my area. Thinking of asking neighbors.
