How many ounces in a tall can of the milk? I didn't even know there was more than one size. I come from a small town, maybe we only have one size here. Or can you tell me how big around and how many inches high?

Sounds like you cooked it a bit too long.....I just made mine......
Private post me and walk me through what all you did and how you did it, break it down for me and I can tell you what happened......When I am doing my fudge I always stick a spoon in it during the boing when it gets close to the end to see what stage I am at....
