    So do you guys think it would it be safe to assume that since your not holding so much concentrated syrup in the pan for as long that there should be less sand? Has anybody made the switch and found that to be true?

    I did not notice a difference in the sugar sand levels when I switched the draw off this year to the closest to the flue pan channel. I really think it depends on other factors and varies year to year. For me the sugar sand was really heavy toward the end of the season it was the same way the year before drawing off at the front.
