If your syrup is 66.9% sugar and a gal. weighs 11 lbs the sugar should be 66.9% of 11 lbs. That should give you 117.74 oz./gal. Divide by 4=29.435 oz per qt. If the syrup is any other % you need to do the math. Now you may need to find what % water remains in the sugar too, since it is not 100% dry.

I typically get 7 to 7 1/2 pounds from a gallon depending on how much crumble I sift out. I will also sift the crumble through a stainless screen ment for cooling Mason jars. Anything that doesn't fit through the second screen goes back into the next batch.
