I'm curious about the maple syrup being listed as 2 pounds. Is that a misprint? Fluid volume would be how it's marked and sold.
Just want to make sure if I should use 2 pounds or 2 fluid (ounces, cups, gallons , other)?

I am pretty sure they mean lbs. I buy my syrup in bulk and it is sold by weight.

The conversion would be roughly 1.5 lbs per pint

** EDIT TO CORRECT MYSELF **

Syrup is closer to 1.4 lbs per pint or just over 11 lbs per gallon (room temp)

Pure maple syrup is by the pound.... Atleast what I bought was. Mrs Buttersworth might be fluid ounces.

I substituted 1056 for the yeast because I had a healthy pitch ready to go and ended up with a terminal gravity of 1.009. Too dry and the spice was just not enough. So I doubled the spice(+1 tbsp) and added 8 oz lactose (ala Pumpking) and my wife loves it now.
