    I use the induction caps and find they work quite well. For the standard caps I heat it at 1200 watts for 0.8 seconds and for the flip top I heat it at 1200 watts for 1.3 seconds. It has helped us with out mold issues quite a bit

    I have no idea what you are talking about..... syrup is meant to be bottled once and only once.

    Ok. With the foil caps you need to purchase an induction sealer. Do you have one of those?

    Induction style caps use a different foil to seal with the sealer. One of the dealers got these by mistake a few years ago in central Wisconsin and people had problems. Maybe this happened again.

    We switched to the induction caps that you heat up with the induction sealer unit. It pretty much eliminated our mold problems in the plastic jugs. The unit itself was around $200 and the lids were roughly 3 cents more but well worth it in my opinion. The seals can be a pain in the *** to get off sometimes.

    My problems was the induction style caps. I am not sure where they came from as I have gotten caps from 3 different dealers. If you flip open the cap there will be black lettering on the seal. All of the ones with the orange lettering have sealed well. I have a few left that did not mold but if you unscrew the cap the whole seal comes with it.
