I've been reading with interest the submissions on brewing
with maple syrup. Being a former Vermonter, I've come
to learn that maple syrup is overpriced in most locations,
and you don't *have* to brew with the grade A light amber
that is usually offered in the shiny little tins. Our local
food cooperative sells grade A dark amber for about $2.40
per pound, which is comparable to buying quality malt
extract or extremely good honey. I have seen bulk maple
syrup for sale by the pound for similar prices in many food
cooperatives and natural food stores. Check it out!

Another option is to purchase Canadian maple syrup (from
Quebec and Ontario). It is typically less than $2.00 per
pound and the quality is fine.
