Hmmmm . . . and here I put 1:2 syrup on my hives (1/3 sugar) -- they still have frames of honey (or 2:1 from fall) but I wanted to stimulate their brood rearing -- that, along with some pollen patties.  They are bringing in their own pollen from somewhere already, and probably nectar too.

I put 1 in the gallon column for 50% and it says I need 9.8 lbs of sugar.. is that right?  For some reason I thought it was less sugar needed for 1 gal of water for 1:1

Using gallons remember that 1 gallon weighs 8 pounds.  Adding 8 pounds of sugar to 1 gallon of water produces a 1:1 mix.  That's as easy as it gets.  If you want to make it in smaller amounts remember that there are 8 pints in 1 gallon so 1 pints equals 1 pound.  A mixture of 1 pint water to 1 pound of sugar will fill a quart jar 2/3 full of 1:1 syrup.
