Sugaring 2014 – Maple Sap Filtering Set-up

Our latest sugaring device.  This little set-up has made filtering large quantities of maple sap a breeze.  I cut the bottom off of a 5 gallon bucket.  I took 4 small spring clamps that I had laying around from last year and used them to clamp filter material on the top of the bucket.

Use then set the cut bucket inside the regular bucket and pour your sap through the filter into the clean sap bucket below.  This worked awesome!

Our end result was clean clear sap from with no debris from the woods.  Cheap and effective.

  1. That was a GREAT idea. I think it would definitely fall into the Yankee Ingenuity column. 🙂

  2. Insulated and bricked my 2X3 Mason like you did, only difference made a wall after grate. Works great. Realy like your blog
    I see you have a piece of wood to tighten door. The handle is on a threaded rod, just loosen the screw in the middle of the door and the handle will rotate out a couple of turns, and you should be good to go.
