My family has been enjoying collecting sap from trees in our back yard using the Tap Kit. We have collected about 40 gal of sap from 6 hard maples and box elder trees, and so far produced about 4 quarts of syrup. The kit was super easy to install. Using a cordless drill with a bit to match the size tap, we connected the taps and tubes to the trees. The sap started flowing immediately. Helpful hints: We added tubing to extend the lengths so we could set our jugs on the ground. Some days our gallon jugs overflowed so I bought some food grade 5 gal pails with lids from Home Depot. Also, processed the sap using wood in our outdoor charcoal grill and a big Nesco pan to add surface space for faster boiling and evaporation. The syrup makes a great gift and is a fun, whole family project

Will order more for next year.

This was the first year I tapped my own maple trees. I bought this kit to get started. It fit the bill just fine. This comes with 5/16 splines which make a smaller hole in the tree than the 7/16 splines I have come to use. They worked fine but I do prefer the slightly larger ones because of their shape and easier supply to the bucket.

The lines are food grade tubing and are long enough for most trees, if you tap about two feet up.

This was a good way to get started. It inspired me to get more equipment which I am now purchasing from Sugar Bush Supply Co.

good quality is all that one could ask for. I have collected almost 100 gallons so far in this dismal cold winterish spring

I bought this tap kit as a gift for my dad for Christmas and he loved it. It's super easy to use. We're starting to collect gallons of sap already.

This was the first year that I tapped my maple trees. These taps worked great om my trees and they were easy to remove when I was finished.

This is a nice set and offers more than enough taps to have a fun, family project.

Installation of this set is a breeze... the tubing is a tight fit on the tap, but that can be made easier by allowing it to soften in hot water for a minute or so.

If there is an issue with this set, it is that the tubes are not very long. You can purchase a suitable 1/4" ID tubing from your local hardware store (and even some barbed T fittings if you want to route multiple lines into one) and route the lines as needed.

Something that worked well for me is drilling holes in the plastic caps of the bottles and fed the tubing into the cap. This allowed for quick "switchout" and the seal between the drilled hole in the cap and the tightly fitted tubing keeps unwanted pests and dirt out.

So, the collection process turned out to be the easy part... and that is what this kit is designed to do. I think the interesting part is how inconsistent sap production is. With my 2 sugar maples below freezing, it didn't do much of anything... but other days I'd draw up to 5 gallons.

Now, the process of cooking the sap... this is pretty tedious and time consuming. I used the single burner on my propane smoker and cooked out about 3/4 gallon per hour. I cooked down about 6 gallons per day to about 3 quarts (8:1), which was manageable to store in the fridge before attempting to cook it to the final 40:1 on the stove top.

The final cookdown is not as easy as it might seem, either. As the syrup thickens, you have to keep stirring and managing the heat, or this can get out of control in a hurry. I've never seen a 3 quart sauce pan JUMP on a glass top stove, before... but with about 3" of liquid that was cooking on a low/medium heat, this did.
