As promised in HBD #832, how to make your own invert sugar....

Boil 8lb of ordinary (cane/beet, white) sugar and a teaspoon of
citric acid in 2 to 3 pints of water for half an hour. When cool,
make up to a gallon with (boiled) water. And lo, you have 8 pounds
of invert sugar in 8 pints of liquid.

The measurements here are English Imperial, which I believe is
different to US. The actual amounts don't matter too much ...
what you're after is an easy to use concentration (e.g. 1 lb per pint).

Have fun y'all.
