When one wants a sugar/water ratio of 1:1, does that mean one pound of sugar for each pound of water? Or is it by volume as in one quart of water for each quart of sugar?
Since a gallon of water wieghs 8.3lbs per gallon, the first way would be 8.3lbs sugar per gallon of water.
While searching the internet for suggested sugar water mixtures, I find a lot of people mix up weights and volumes when discussing these ratios to the point of some confussion.
Someone straighten me out.......
