Haynes, It's getting the ice out of the cage tanks. My pan,,, I figured holds about 35 gals and that's about what sweet I'll have when i'm out of sap. I've got a 2x8 with 6 foot drop that i got new last year and don't want to ruin it. Drop flues hold more gals than most think. And my sap at best only runs about 1 1/2 % so not much syrup. And then temps are to drop and stay below freezing, even for highs for a week or more before I might get any more sap. Don't want freeze bust flues.
