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 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.

I bought 20 taps this spring. I tapped 6 sugar maples in the woods behind my new house. They were 1-2 ft dia and I used two taps per tree. I collected 35 gallons of sap this spring. I ended up with 3 QTS of amazing syrup. Unfortunately one batch got spilled in the fire right and the end but I managed to save 1/3 of it.
I used a cinder block evaporator. I used 20 cinder blocks in a rectangle with one end open. I put 3 ft of stovepipe in the top back for a smokestack and put bricks around that. The front I left open to load wood. Once I got the wood in I would close it back up with bricks,except for two small holes to allow draft for the fire. On the top, I used two commercial steam pans, one aluminum and one stainless. They have a small lip around the edge of them. So I positioned my cinder blocks to hold the steam pans by those lips, and put the pans right next to each other. The pans enclose most of the top of the set up, with a gap in the front and back. I used sheet metal weighted down by bricks to completely enclose the rest of the gaps.
This keeps heat from escaping, so its essentially a small woodstove with the pans and sheet metal as the top.
I was cooking off 2-3 gallons of water per hour. Then I finished it inside and filtered it.

Can't wait till 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.

I have four maple trees in our yard; one sugar maple and three silver maples. Just out of sheer curiosity I decided to tap the trees for sap this Spring to see if I could produce maple syrup. After researching the methods and equipment needed, I decided to try the spile kit here.

They were amazingly easy to install with only a cordless drill and a rubber mallet to tap the spiles into the holes. Within minutes, I had sap running into a few empty 1 gallon water jugs. I could barely keep up with the output, and on several days I had to empty the jugs several times a day to keep them from overrunning. I was able to boil down almost 28 gallons of sap into several quarts of the most delicious maple syrup we've ever had (using a propane burner outdoors), so I was totally delighted in the performance of this kit. Most of my (decidedly urban) friends were astounded.

Removal of the spiles took no time with a slight twist and tug, and clean-up of the kit couldn't be easier with a bit of dishwashing liquid and a quick rinse with a mild bleach solution, so I'm ready to go for next Spring! I would not hesitate to recommend this kit to anyone who is curious about sugaring.
