Default First time tapper in southeast missouri

Put out 20 taps I got off eBay and amazon
Relide on info from YouTube, books, google
And Pinterest to find out how to do everything!
Long story short... We got sap, we cooked it down
And got syrup = we are hooked!! Loved the whole
Process, got the whole family involved and ended up
With some great tasting syrup. Wish there was more

Welcome to the site great to have you. So you went out and got the worst bug possible and came home and infected the whole family with it.

I can say it is the most year round fun you can have playing the WHAT IF game..........................

Welcome. Just be careful....some of the things we've seen on YouTube and on websites are just absolutely ridiculous.
