This Birch Tree Tapping Kit is used when the sap begins to run in birch. This is normally late February into March.
The kit includes the following:
- A turned oak tap
- A turned oak bung
You will also need an empty 5 litre water container and a 16mm (5/8″) drill.
Tapping birch trees does not harm the tree but is s way to tap into natures own source.
Birch Tree Tapping Kit can produce:
- Refreshing drink
- Sweet syrup (like maple syrup but less air miles
- Traditional wine
Birch sap looks like water and has a faint taste like maple syrup. It is most refreshing straight from the tree.
