Please? I'm sure I can figure this out, but if anyone has a recipe that he/she is using, please let me know. I am looking to feed 15 hives, so I don't need a huge batch.

Thanks

My translation of the MP recipe;

8 cups sugar
2 cups oil
11 cups sub

Somewhere around gallon and a half or a little more. Looks like it does when weighing, they are still eating it after two weeks.

Oh yeah, the water 4 cups

Pollen Patty recipe For 1 pound
Water lbs 0.675 (10.8 fl oz)
Sugar lbs 1.675 (volume of 28 oz)
Vegetable oil cups 0.350
Dry sub lbs 1.000 (Mix until correct consistency)

1 pound of water is 16 fluid oz (2 cups)
I have heard the volume of sugar and water is roughly the same.
