They don't seem to sell corn syrup over here but if I use maple syrup is it in the same ratios as in the teks. I'm asuming it would be I'm just after some who's tried it to confirm it. It seems a hell of a lot easier and quicker than just using a syringe.

Just more on the subject, my FOAF just took the tbls of syrup, dissolved it in warm water, covered the half pint jar with saran wrap and microwaved it, then innoced through saran once it was cooled, and covered innoc hole with electrical tape.
