On the Scene: Checking hydrometers with Dr. Gary Graham of OSU Ext.

January 25, 2019

Today we visit with Dr. Gary Graham of The Ohio State University Extension system as he checks hydrometer accuracy at the Ohio Maple Days event in Fredericksburg, Ohio on Jan. 18. Graham says that an inaccurate hydrometer can cost the sugarmaker hundreds of dollars or more over a season, by making syrup too heavy. Most maple producing states offer free hydrometer checking services prior to the maple season.
