Default Belgian candy experts : why heating it up to crack ball at the end

Why should I heat my candy sugar up to crack ball (300) fahrenheit at the end?

And is it really important to add water after reaching this point ?

(I want sirup, not hard rock sugar!)

No idea how the folks here do it, but several (if not most/all) of the Trappist breweries use syrup.
