Current 1:1 Sugar Syrup Recipe

Get a pH tester with calibration solution and calibrate it.

In a 1 gallon pitcher:

     Add 2 quarts of warm, distilled water

     Add 2 quarts organic cane sugar  (this will all fit with a little room to spare)

     Stir until sugar is thoroughly dissolved

     Test the pH – it will read somewhere around 6.0

Dissolve 2 teaspoons of ascorbic acid powder in 4 oz of warm, distilled water

Add to gallon of sugar syrup and stir until well mixed

Test the pH again – the goal is 4.0

Add additional dissolved ascorbic acid until approximately 4.0 pH is reached
