20 New 5/16" Sugar Maple Taps with 24" flexible hoses.
I have cut these hoses to 24" which works well for running sap into buckets or jugs. We had a couple warm days so I tried it out to get a good photo and I ended up with 1 gallon of sap. This made about 3oz. of Maple syrup. It takes 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup.
We sell both the round head and hex head taps and will ship the type we have in stock at the time of your order. They are both very high quality.
If you would like less than 20 just send me a msg. and I will send you the price.
Just Drill a 5/16" hole, insert tap, and place a bucket, milk jug other container on the ground to collect sap. These new 5/16" taps are better for the trees than 7/16" taps and they can be re-used after cleaning.
I will quickly ship these out through priority mail.
Maple syrup can be produced with minimal equipment, but a few standard items increase efficiency of the operation and quality of the product: 1. A drill with a 5/16" bit. 2. A collection spout (spile) for each taphole. 3. A collection container (bucket or plastic bag) or tubing line for each taphole. 4. A large pan and heat source for boiling down the sap. Size will depend on amount of sap involved. (kitchen stove & large pot for small amounts) 5. A candy thermometer is helpful. 6. Wool, orlon or other type filters for filtering finished syrup while hot. (You could just let the syrup settle.) 7. Storage containers for the finished syrup. (canning jars work very well)
The best maple syrup areas are the midwest and northeast from Sugar Maple trees but it can also be made from Red Maples.
