    Default 1gallon 2:1 syrup = how much capped stores?

    I checked my late summer split nucs today and a few need some extra stores. I am wondering when I put in one gallon of 2:1 in the frame feeder how much that will convert to in caped frames of stores?

    One quart of 1:1 on mini mating nucs this summer with half size deep frames gave me one mini frame, each side 1/3 full..



    It would depend on if they are still feeding brood or not. If they are just storing it I'd guess a gallon of 2:1 would do a single standard deep frame if it was already drawn out both sides.
    So if you need four frames of additional feed-it should take about 4-5 gallons of 2:1

    How could something that doesnt weigh 10 lbs, add 10 lbs of weight? Or does a gallon of syrup weigh more than a gallon of any other liquid? Or are you calling a gallon of 2:1, 1 gallon of water with 8 lbs of sugar added to it, which would weigh around 16lbs. But is more than a gallon. Steve

    2:1 syrup weighs almost as much as honey.
