    Thx Dave...

    I've been told by a dealer we both know and love that they made award winning syrup, more than once, utilizing gravity before they purchased their press....at my size this year I think we'll stay gravity but as I grow it seems inevitable that a press is in our near future...

Try using about 1 cup/gal of HOT syrup for your first pour and about 1/2 cup/gal if you pour a second or third time or batch. Do not remove the filter cake that forms, that IS your best filtering media. Doing it this way, your pre-filters will last far longer before needing cleaning.


    Dave, how do I remove the plugged pre-filter yet leave the filter cake??
