Default Maple Sugar

Hello all,

Has anyone used Maple Sugar rather than Maple syrup? I am looking to make a maple brown ale and the price of maple syrup is crazy. So I was thinking about using Maple Sugar. Is this an option? Has anyone used maple sugar before?

Thanks for the help

last I checked, maple sugar was just syrup with all the water evaporated - so it should work fine.
BTW I have also heard that the spice "fenugreek" added to the boil really ups the mapley taste - never tried it though.

As a follow up to this post. I am getting ready to brew a maple brown and was wondering when should the maple syrup be added? During the boil or add it to the secondary? Any suggestions on how much to use?

Thanks in advance
