We left about 8" of syrup in our tote and did not thin it with water. It is now hard. Any suggestions on how to get it liquid again? We have about a 6" opening in top to work with.

Thanks

You could use a shielded immersion heater to liquify the syrup. Mann Lake carries one that is 1000 watts. It's worked for me heating water for making feed.

Immersion heater is what I use each year. Bulb does not work very fast due to loss of heat on the sides. I also have put in hot water. picked up the tote with the front end loader and shaked the crap out of it. It was the biggest mixer I have ever used. I am thinking of doing Margaretta's at the next party that way.

I use the immersion bucket heater also. I have a 6' long 3/8" pipe with a quickcoupler on the end that I hook to my airhose and agitate every few hours to speed things up.
