Default Think i found another sweet tree?

Tested this tree I have been eyeballing for years today. It was 4.1% so hopefully in 7-10 days I can get out on tour and check it again. Up for grabs is 2 tickets to who ever guesses the exact SSC on next test?

Stopped at a Sugar house and their sap coming into tank was 1.1% SSC.

Tonights chat guys got first stabs at guessing it.

Only 1 guess per person.

Sapcreek= Look back at Pic as Tin/Tin Bucket has already guessed 5.4 and your 5.4 will not be honored as the first correct guess. Better get your swimmies ready as I think you need to regroup. LOL
I do know who sapcreek is and that person is hiding under the witness protection plan. I won't tell them who this really is

Go back and edit your guess.

Just so people know
Jake is 5.7%
ADK1 is 8%
Tin is 5.4%
Lake view is 3.7%

A few days before I go re-check the sugar maple again. I will post a countdown notice for some that want to guess at the SSC that have not.
