Maple Sugaring, Part 2
Here is the syrup as it came finished from the pot. As you can see there are particulates in it. I put it through a coffee filter to clean it up. The first 5-gallon batch (well, a little less than 5 gallons) I boiled at home yielded 16oz of syrup. I added the 8oz from the Lohman boil to those first 16oz I made at home to cook it all the way down to sugar. The second (very full) 5-gallon batch yielded 22oz of syrup, which I am going to keep as syrup.
