For the typical urban syrup setup, consider having the following gear:
(1) Campfire Tripod
(1) X Quart Cast Iron Kettle
(1) Hand Held Strainer
If you plan to invite neighbors and friends, get additional taps and buckets to lend out. The more sap you collect, the more syrup you will have in the end.
