Analyzing Maple Syrup

  • Friday, October 13, 2017, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

This workshop is to acquaint WNY maple producers on the newest testing equipment.

  • Learn about how a Spectrophotometer can be used to determine the correct grade and best use for syrup samples,
  • how the Biochemistry Analyzer will be able to determine the percent alcohol in products such as the Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup, and
  • how a Digital Benchtop Refractometer will give an accurate and narrow range of brix in maple products.

We will be testing the accuracy of refractometers and hydrometers, so bring your equipment with you!

$10/person, or $5 if enrolled.  Refreshments included.
