Ah nothing fancy yet-- trying to do this first year on vacuum top of the line, except for the vacuum pump and releaser . You probably saw the vacuum pump I cobbled together and it seems to work very well.
I picked up a milk releaser off ebay. The larger globe type. I am just going to make a frame and backboard to hold the releaser and the moisture trap. I need to stablize the 3/4 inch tubing line coming into the whole thing once in the woods where I will set it up.
This is all new to me so I read evrything I can on here and talke to folks.
Going to a tubing seminar today at Andersons.
