started off, way, back tapping some trees and filling the kitchen with steam, boiling on a pot on the stove.
oldest son is now into it a bit (90+ taps this year). Had a great time yesterday with family doing up a batch, wild game meat on the menu too, etc. - good times.

Wow that's quite a setup! Is that a commercially made rig?
yes, commercially made - lots of gear out there - new & used. In the land of stainless steel, food grade barrels & buckets, filters, electronic temperature probes, hygrometer, etc Yet, still sanitize the jars n lids with the old enamel pot, lol. Bit of work but lots of fun and awesome product.

I know its a ton but did you or your son ever keep track of how much firewood used to produce X amount of syrup?
I used to try and burn all deadfall to make ours there was a pile of wood used couldnt bring myself to burning seasoned hardwood
had a pretty big delivery of firewood from the Fiona Wood Felling Company, so no issues this year or next.
