Dave,

I had a gallon of your syrup froze. We had to take it out of the freezer to make room for food during Irma so it got defrosted for 3 days. Can we refreeze and will it be good?

Bill, you can put it back in the freezer. While it gets real cold it doesn't actually freeze solid unless you can get to about -70F. Warmer than that it just gets thicker (like molasses in January). When I ship syrup I put in a note that the best way to preserve the flavor is to store it in the freezer. Then when you will be needing a refill for the container in your refrigerator, take it out of the freezer the night before and it will warm enough overnight to pour some into a smaller container for the fridge, then put the rest back in the freezer. 2 points, you don't want to put a full jug in a freezer that is colder than zero F and don't try to freeze a glass bottle of maple syrup, it will actually expand and break a glass bottle, in a jug it will not as long as you removed a little to keep in the fridge first.

Thanks!  I'd sure hate to have lost a full gallon of this wonderful syrup!

I'm just a back yard syrup. But freezing mine shows me I got all the water out. There should be nothing froze.  ;)

Going, Going but not gone. Yesterday I participated in a local "meet the vendors" event at my only other outlet I use for my syrup (other than sugarhouse and home sales) aside from the Forestry Forum. At it I sold 15 more bottles of the Bourbon Barrel aged Maple Syrup. I was offering small sample cups of the syrup for them to taste, 16 tasted it, and 15 bought. The only one who tasted but did not buy, said she really liked it but she had recently started Weight Watchers and thought it might not help her reach her goal.
While I had hoped for even more sales, the % of those who sampled it to those who bought was good. It seems many just hear the word Bourbon and think it is alcoholic and never give it a chance. It contains lots of bourbon flavor but less than 2% alcohol.
