People have asked what sap looks like or how much comes out of the tree?
Maple sap should look clear, just like water. The sap pictured below was just under 2% sugar content so to make 1 gallon of syrup we will need about 38 gallons of sap. Unfortunately at different times the sugar content will go down to 1.5% so we’ll need even more sap to make that same gallon of syrup.
Today was overcast and about 34deg so not optimal, but just warm enough to get some sap flowing.
Here’s a quick video from earlier today to see the sap flow.
