how to mix up 1 gallon of sugar syrup

Double click on the post to see the attached recipes - pdf file.

When I started beekeeping, I found recipes for sugar syrup, but not specific enough to get just a gallon of syrup which is a handy quantity to put into one or more containers for a backyard hobbyist to use. Some even debated with themselves about whether a pint equals a pound, NOT important IMHO. I hope new beekeepers especially find these two recipes helpful. If not, keep good notes so you will have your own recipe!
