Damn! A lot more than I ever thought I'd have
What is the calculation I need to work out how much sugar I need to make 50 gallon of 1:1 syrup please? Doing it by weight is doing my head in

Too many - but not nearly enough
25 gallons of sugar and 25 gallons water - simplest way................................

or I think it's 136 litres water to 135 kilos sugar - or thereabouts :unsure:
1 kilo of sugar to a litre of water makes 1.67 litres 1:1 (ish) syrup

So much easier to work in metric units!
I kilo(kg) of sugar to I kilo (kg) of water....
( I liter ( fresh) water magically weighs I kg!)

I imperial gallon is 4.6 liters if that helps!!!
The Americans of course have different gallons... probably measured in cups!
