I have to agree that it was not wort on the walls. The sugar does not leave the wort the only thing that is driven off is water.
I do maple syrup and if the sugar would be in the steam then the maple shed (tool shed) would be one hell of a sticky mess.I have to boil off 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup. Try this next time put a lid on the wort for a few minutes letting some condensation build, then remove the lid and set it upside down so the condensation pools. Taste it ... bet its tastes like distilled water ...... because that’s what it is
