    Well Parker it's hard to believe that your sugar was really that low. You've been grooming those woods for years to make the sugars healthier. After a very weak first run nothing here was less than...

    I cut the old taps off about a month before I tap. I never thought of doing that but jrgagne99 has a good idea and I would do that if this wasn't my last season.

    I would add a feed pump like the one that Dave posted a link to. I don't know if the 3/4 hp pump that you mentioned is supposed be a feed pump but if it is it's not doing it's job. I would remove...

    My recommendation is that you get a LaPierre or CDL professional model 250 RO. They are the only RO's that have recirculation pumps on the bottom of the membrane towers. Because of that feature they...

    I haven't kept up with what Theron is at for tap count and equipment but the last that I had heard was that he has about 10000 taps now. His evaporator is a 6 x 14 and as far as I know he's still...

    You will find that you will be able to make plenty of dark syrup with your current pan configuration when you are concentrating into the teens. The concentrate will darken in the flue pan and get...

    My LaPierre 250 Turbo RO has two 4" membranes so my results won't be the same as a single post 8" machine but when I set it at .5 gpm and 450 psi I get around 14% in a single pass.

    If bulk prices were better I'd still be going too but I haven't got the time to make a bunch of off flavor syrup to bring to Bascom's for peanuts.

    Sounds like you had quite the day on Monday. That wind was brutal here. I was canning syrup and stepped out back to take a wizz and was thinking about how amazing it was that the pine trees could...

    It was a beautiful day to be in the woods and if I was still going I would have probably gotten a good run. Instead I was bringing my tank and releaser back to the sugar house and pulling my taps....

    I agree, I've tapped mostly reds since 2005 and I've never made buddy syrup. Until this year I have been one of the last producers in my area to call it a season. In 2012 the season pretty much ended...

    It's good to see that you're finally getting some sap. I pulled my taps today but you should be able to keep going for another week or so if the weather cooperates.

    I used to tap all sugars and then transitioned to reds as I opened up my woods. About 90% of my trees are reds. I didn't notice any difference in filtering difficulty when I left the sugar maple...

    Chris, I think he's referring to the problem of sweet from the front pan going into the flue pan with temperature changes during a boil and when he shuts down. If CDL makes a raised flue evaporator...

    I had that problem a couple of times and just continued to exit out of the thread. When I went back in and checked the message was there. I'm using a Samsung tablet.

    I don't remember how much syrup you typically make in a normal season but 70 gallons seems pretty good. I made a little over a half crop here. I hope that you have a good season next year.

    I called it a season here too. I made a little over a half crop which is disappointing but it was actually all that I wanted to make. I hope that you have a better season next year.
