  • Weigh out the high purity sucrose in grams directly into a beaker
  • Add distilled or deionized water to the beaker so the total weight of the solution is 100g
  • Note: Solutions above 65% may need to be vigorously stirred or shaken and heated in a water bath to roughly 40°C (104°F). Remove solution when sucrose has dissolved and allow to cool before use
