One of my all time favorite brews was made using a pound of Maple Syrup
in place of a pound of malt extract. I used it in a 'standard' ale
recipe. (I have never made the exact same brew twice. I may not
have consistency, but I have FUN.) I doubt you would want to ferment
100% Maple syrup. It is far too close to pure sugar. It would also
be incredibly expensive. I would hesitate to go more than 25% Maple
syrup. What I used translates to about 15%. As far as using Maple
Syrup as flavoring, DO IT. I think you'll enjoy it.
