If I ever feed, and generally I only feed new installations, I just mix as much sugar as will saturate the water from the hot tap. It gets pretty syruppy and thick. There is plenty of water here and I am more concerned about getting them enough feed sugar in the feed rather them eating it up really fast because they need more sugar. 3 sandwich ziplock bags last 1 week nearly all my new installations I have performed when I fed syrup instead of honey combs.
