    Default Mixing sugar syrup - 20 gallons at a time -video

    Your beekeeping enterprise is expanding. Mixing sugar syrup to feed bees in 5 gallon pails is no longer working. Yet you aren’t ready to buy it by the tanker load. This is a relatively simple way to mix 20 gallon batches utilizing a piece of equipment you may already own….and if you don’t, you probably should.

    Sorry Dan; dont know how I missed seeing that long handled dandy of a spoon! I find the 2 to 1 takes a fair bit of stirring. Your system sure beats working on the kitchen range.
