The basic process of making maple syrup is extremely simple. This well written bulletin tells you how to make your own maple syrup on the three simplest levels. From a couple maple trees in your backyard, this will get your own delicious maple syrup on the table for you. Many hints, tips and directions for making maple syrup are included. Contents include: The Sugar Maple, System One, System Two, System Three, Extra Sugaring Equipment, Where to Get Maple Sugaring Supplies.

The equipment for making syrup can be as simple as a drill, four or six tree spouts, some large plastic milk jugs or buckets, candy thermometer and a stainless steel pan, large stock pot or kettle. A hydrometer with a hydrometer cup along with a syrup filter bag would also be very helpful. Or you can make it large and complicated as a full-scale sugarhouse with a holding tank, large evaporator, finishing pan, filters, and with twenty or more other pieces of maple sugaring and maple candy making equipment.

The Making maple syrup bulletin will tell you how to make your own maple syrup on three simple levels. The first level is for people who intend to tap only a couple of trees in their backyard or friends lot, and to make only a couple of quarts of delicious maple syrup, and to spend no more than $50 on maple sugaring equipment. The second level of interest, are those who may make five or even ten gallons of maple syrup, and who will put $300 to $450 into maple sugaring equipment. The third level is the group of people who want to become small commercial maple syrup producers. If you're one of these, you may get the smallest size hobby evaporator, drill anywhere from 60 to 200 taps, and produce from fifteen to fifty gallons of maple syrup each spring. With level three, you will have to make an initial capital investment of at least $1,500 to $2,500 to start your commercial venture. You can then make many maple products including maple candy, maple cream, maple sugar and the new maple pepper spice blend.
