I've been doing some digging on this today, but haven't found much. The only number I've gotten so far is 31ppg, but that seems awfully low for something that seems to be mostly sugar. Any one have a good number for what Grade B Maple Syrup might be?

Thanks in advance

Maple syrup is only 60% sugar.

Add 1 pound to 1 gallon water and measure it to be the most accurate.

Here is the best and most inexpensive way to determine this IMO.

Measure 1oz of maple syrup by weight, then add enough water to reach 8oz. by volume. Mix to be sure all the syrup is evenly disolved in the water. Measure the gravity of this solution to determine the PPG of "your" maple syrup.

I like it, that's a great idea. Thx

This process works for any fermentable that you want to determine the PPG for.
ie. LME, DME, Corn Sugar, Honey, Juice Concentrate, Syrup, Molasses
