I mix 2 1/2 quarts of water to 10lbs of sugar for winter stores and it makes about 1 1/3 gallons of syrup. So I would think 1 gallon of water would probably be too much for fall feeding.

id go 16lb of sugar to a gallon right now. i never measure by the wieght we always do it by volume. spring i go half a 55gal drum to half water. in the fall i go 2/3 sugar to 1/3 water. but that probably dosent help you out. regards Nick

If you're going by weight, you'll be putting in 8 lbs. of water to 10 lbs. of sugar. That's closer to 1:1. I would go with swarm_trapper's mix which is 2:1.

A pint is a pound. 8 pints to a gallon, thus...8 pounds.

Hope this helps!
