    Default 5:3 fall sugar water mix

    Thought someone else might need this, Joe

    5:3 FALL SUGAR WATER MIX

    Five Parts SUGAR TO Three parts WATER


    4# SUGAR (64 OUNCES) 2 # WATER39 OZ.+/- 1 QUARTS
    5# SUGAR (80 OUNCES) 3# WATER 48 OZ. 1 QUARTS
    8# SUGAR (128 OUNCES) 5# WATER 80 OZ. +/- 2 QUARTS
    9# SUGAR (144 OUNCES) 5# WATER 90 OZ. +/- 2 QUARTS
    10# SUGAR (160 OUNCES) 6# WATER 96 OZ. 3 QUARTS

    Note: The sugar plus the water makes slightly more than twice the water, e.g., 5 pounds of sugar plus 1 1/2 quarts of water will produce about 3 1/4 cups of sugar water.

    Thanks to Mike Bush for suggesting my making 5:3 ratio rather than 2:1 for fall feeding; this is working much better.
