Here is a very good source of conversions for beekeepers:

Sample question: "I want to mix a 10 gallon container of syrup - how much sugar for a heavy syrup?"
Note: 65% concentration is normally the highest sugar concentration which can be achieved by beekeepers mixing their own syrup. At concentrations above this, sugar is likely to come back out of solution, especially at lower temperatures. Fine liquid sugar (FLS) is available from sugar refineries at 67% concentration.

All you have to do is type in your numbers and the data is provided.
This should help a lot of you that are making sugar syrup.
Give it a try.
