So have you ever had a problem with the sugar not dissolving because the water isn't hot enough? I always heated up the water until it's almost boiling and that takes forever! And the wife usually grumps about it.inch:Hey Nelson, I do it 5 gallons at a time with warm tap water and a big spoon. Doesnt take a whole lot of effort to get it done honestly. you could even get a paint stirer from Home Depot or something like that to help you out.
