    I tapped my trees Feb 26. I pulled the taps today, Mar 8. I've got 7 gallons of syrup and enough sap for another gallon and a half of syrup. It was a very busy week and a half. The sap was running very good today when I pulled the taps.

    Same up here in the Federation of Kirtland Hills...it was pouring in as of mid afternoon - including 160+ gal of water removed by the RO, I pulled 370 gal of 1 1/2% by 9pm.

    Had to stop the RO at 3.25 % to clear out the collection tank to make room for the over-night run, finally filled the evap, then fiddled with float box adjustments and other "fancy stuff".

    I now have a full 160 gal head tank at 3.25% and anticipate a full collection tank.

    All I can say is it's About Time

    That’s a lot of sap Kevin. Maybe time for that silo you‘ve been thinking about.
    What’s the sugar?
    Although temps were forecast to be in 40’s last night, it got cold enough down by the creek that my sap lifter iced up a bit.

    This week was good with boils on both Tuesday and Wednesday. I'm pretty sure I have the new H20 Even Flow auto draw dialed in...

    First boil on Tuesday was up and down as I kept fighting foam in the pans and playing with the draw off temp by hitting two buttons which caused the valve to open and dump under-density syrup into my tank.

    Unknowingly I was calibrating the unit - and who knows what else - but the "manual" is a bit light on the details to say the least.
    Made me crazy until Wednesday's boil when I realized that all I had to do was hit either an Up or Down Arrow to adjust temperature.
    Once I had that figured out, I was able to adjust for density at will and set about 2 points heavy to correct what I had in the tank.

    Now very impressed with how smoothly it operates. When it senses syrup is at the set temp it cracks open just a bit, then more as needed to maintain that temperature - it's fun to watch.
    Also really cool to see the draw off temp adjust automatically with changes in barometric pressure - saw a 2/10ths of a degree change during Wed boil.

    Anyway, I'm at 10 gallons made so far and getting ready for more this weekend.
