    nOm! nOm! Diabetes!
    The Choklat Stout float is a bit off, extensive experimentation on the ratio of portions is called for! CHEERS!!!!

    That shed you see in the right is where my grandfather produced maple syrup for over 50 years!

    Yes it was a NN bomber and amazing, so I can only imagine that on tap would be heavenly! Hmm I am trying to think what my greatest on tap was...Ah yes! A McChouffe, Cantillon, and an Avery Mephistopheles Stout! Phew simply amazing and unplanned! Just the way I love it! :D

    Ah no thats not our camaro! It would be that house on the left and as I told Fc, the shed on the right was where 50 years of maple syrup was produced! This plot of land is roughly 150 acres or so, and snow showing to tap trees was fun! :D

    That kinda reminds me of Dillinger Escape Plan from when I was into them (Under The Running Board era).

    That choklat float might be the greatest thing I have ever seen. I have one that I'm saving until Thursday and I think I might try this

    Oh, man. An appreciation for real, pure, and high-quality maple syrup is something I'm very proud of as an upstater. Sounds weird, but it's part of who I am.

    Oh I know this feeling well, my friend! I know Canada and Vermont make great maple syrup, but we poured our hearts out! My dad said that when he was in school, he would wake up and find the maple shed pumping smoke out, and even still when he got home and was ready for bed my grandfather was still out there boiling sap! (This was around 1970 ish) It was never to that degree when I did it but a lot of work goes into more the anyone dare or cares to know. I would honestly estimate around 20,000 to 35,000 trees tapped every year and it would fill a 1000 gallon tank fairly quickly if the weather was right!
