    Been using one tablespoon per quart. This is the same amount as my wife uses when canning tomatoes.

    Been doing it since last fall, bees like it and are wintering very well. Had good honey supply, fed syrup and fumigillin in the fall. Been feeding fondant boiled to 248F with same mixture to be sure there is enough winter food supply. Bees seem to really like the taste and have no nosema.

    I have just been putting in citric acid crystals in my tank. I would say about a 3 pounds to 500 gallons or so.
    just enough to drop the ph to the correct level since we have very hard water.
