    Default Screaning sugar

    I'm looking to make a large screener/sive for maple sugar. Thinking about buying a piece of perforated stainless with 1/16" or 1/8" holes. Will 1/8" holes be too big?

    It depends upon your process and the texture of the sugar you want. For fine granulated 1/8" is probably a bit too big and 1/16" is probably good.

    I use a fine sieve about 1/16" mesh and that makes a consistent fine granulated. I also use two larger sieves for screening larger chunks which I also sell.
