    I had a lot of upgrades this season after dumping around 8k into the sugaring operation. I will be adding some surflo pumps next season because my red maples just don't run great on their own. Glad you made that much syrup, those double 400 gal runs must have been nice! My biggest run was only around 120 gal.

    I tell people I'm that I lose 50$ every time I sell a gallon or I'm selling 100$ gallons for 50$. Added a new raised flue pan and accessories. 4500 invested this year myself. most of my taps are reds and 75 running on a pump, sure helps get them started. I use 3/16 so a hybrid system
