Simple Syrup for Beehive

Pour into a 1 gallon bag, poke a few (3) tiny holes in the top and lay it on top of the frames in the hive. I have a spacer that is about 4 inches that goes in to keep the top off of the bag.

You’ll need a large saucepan or stockpot, a bag of sugar and some water.


  • 4 lb bag of granulated sugar
  • 8.25 C of water
  • Add the sugar and water to the pan or pot, put it on the stove on high. When it boils it will be cloudy at first, then clear. When it’s clear take it off the heat and let it cool. When it’s cool, transfer to a 1 gallon plastic zip-close bag and it’s ready.
