7,5 g acid +100g warm water+100g sugar = to 3 double box hives or to 5 one box hive.

that the magic formula
can use 100ml of water... same as 100g.... you can use the 50ml syringe to measure it!!

Post office scales are accurate, so pop in and ask your local Mrs Goggins if you can use hers!!

Bye your own kitchen scale. It is not much. 1g accuracy is enough and you may scale water too.
