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.
