Into the woods by 10:30 AM. Started the R/O wash cycle first, then started cleaning the evaporator. Empty the sap. Take off the flue pan and rinse. Replace the flue pan. Get a tank of water and fill the flue pan with water. Start the fire. While the water warms, boil down the sap from the evaporator in the front syrup pan.
At 1:00 PM started the finishing pan so syrup would be ready shortly after 3:00 PM. By 3:45 PM we were bottling. After bottling returned to finished the sap on the evaporator. By 7:30 PM back to the farmhouse.
