I went to the sugarhouse this morning to boil up what I had left in my main tank.I had to unthaw the lines from the head tank to the arch,well finally got everything going and had a nice boil going in a few minutes.Man I love AUF it really gets things going fast,my friend Bill showed up and hung out for a few hours long enough to eat half dozen pancakes with hot syrup.I made 2 gallons and a quart ,seems like a pattern starting here.....Hmmmmm, of dark amber .Im going to pull the front pan before boil again and give it a good cleaning,I think Im getting a darker grade from the fact I came EXTREMELY close to toasting my front pan.I was going along and forgot the defoamer and the next thing I know I smell syrup,I look into the pan and it was foaming way up,I hit with the defoamer and brought it back quick.I think my pan was close and it darkened the grade,just a thought.Well I hope you all are having a great season so far ,the weather looks good for the rest of the week.Good Luck and God Bless ,Al
