Just curious.

i like Sugar Syrup because I can make it up myself in either a 1:1 ratio or 2:1 ratio.     It is a good alternative for hobby beekeepers.    Most of the commercial beekeepers use HFCS, becuase they buy in bulk for many 100's of hives.

By the time I pay shipping on HFCS it would be more expensive.  I'm not convinced that it's any better than sugar syrup.
