    Used the canner over the weekend, and it worked great. The other canner had a 1F swing, which I think I like better than the 3F swing. I do notice the syrup temp dropping more than my old canner.

    Hi Everyone,

    I had a water jacketed canner made for me and all I have to do is wire it up. I thought the wiring would be pretty simple, mainly because I could copy what was done on my old electric...

    I'm not sure if it is or not. It was just in the interest of upgrading equipment. I've had the press for years, it worked fine, and it handled most every day of syrup production.

    I'm kinda jealous. We haven't had a big run yet this year. Generally, 1/2 runs, and a couple decent runs, but nothing that'll knock your socks off. Season's not over yet, so there's still hope.
