Re: Maple Syrup

Guy I work with has boiled down 80 gallons of sap so far. Has already made more this year than all of last season.

Re: Maple Syrup

Boiling as I type this. I had tapped earlier this year and got a good amount done a few weeks ago. The trees are really running right now with this warm snap.

Re: Maple Syrup

We boiled down 60 gallons yesterday. Ended up with one and a half gallons of syrup. Sent the kids out this morning before school, and we got another 50 gallons of sap last night. Will empty them out when I get home. Just hoping the weather doesn't get too warm this week, if it keeps running like this for the next couple of days we should have quite a bit by the end of the week.

Re: Maple Syrup

I'm curious - Assuming some of you are just boiling down in a large stock pot, how much propane do you go through boiling?

Seems like it would be quite a bit. I have a 15 gallon pot I use to brew in, takes quite a bit of propane to boil off just 5 gallons of water & a lot of time.

Re: Maple Syrup

We are using a stock pot to heat the sap on a small wood stove and fish fryer with propane to finish. I had a half tank that was on the smoker and didnt run out. We only did 25 or so gallons so far

Re: Maple Syrup

Having a heck of a time posting video from photobucket without sending an open link to my account. Any suggestions?
