    How long has it been in the feeder?

    It's probably not 'crystalizing' like honey does-I'm thinking its probably just undisolved sugar thats left over in the syrup. 2:1 is incredibly thick and takes a lot of heat and a lot of stirring to get all the sugar disolved.

    Yes sometimes you will get some settle in the bottom of the feeder if you didn't get it dissolved real well.

    ALL of the sugar was thoroughly dissolved when I put it in there two days ago.

    Humm I mix thousands of pounds of sugar syrup up a year and store it for weeks at a time and I've never seen it crystallize? So if you got it thoroughly dissolved I don't know...
