No.I was wondering if you can tap maple trees in like june and july for their sap?
nope...the sap will taste bad then. We're on Spring Break here right now, but last week we took a group of students to a sugar bush about 1/2 hour from the school, and we were told.... they tap only 2500 trees there, so are considered a very small operation. It takes 40 gallons of sap to get 1 gallon of syrup, and they generally only get about 6 weeks to do it; 8 weeks is a long run. Yes, you can tap many other trees for sap and consequently syrup, but the sugar content is highest in acer sacchurum. They need cold nights, and sunny days (exactly what we're having now!), so tomorrow we're off to get our year's supply!

Birch sap has some sugar, it makes a drink which is rather like root beer, it can be fermented, before prohibition it was always fermented.Birch trees? Whats that syrup taste like?
Also how long does maple syrup last and where can I store it that it will last the longest?
