I've never been to a syrup production facility but I sure do like that 
remaining 1%.  Actually, when I was a small kid I once drilled a hole in 
a small maple and collected some sap in a small glass jar.  As I recall 
(and it was probably nearly 60 years ago) the sap froze in the jar and 
broke it.  I never did get a taste of the 1% stuff.  :-)
