Hey all, just wondering what people are paying for liquid sugar/litre/kg? I am mixing my own syrup (which I buy by the pallet ~$1.45kg granulated white sugar)... but curious about the economics of it as I have never really shopped around. I know you can buy bulk liquid from several Auckland based companies... is anyone doing that, how do the costs stack up with freight included? Gets confusing with all the ratios and then factoring in the time and fuel to collect, sugar is a big cost so keen to check in and see what others are paying and where they are buying it from. Thanks all

Sorry, you confused me at first then I realised my error...Haha, computers are not my thing and I didn't set this up very well... all tidy now, only have a handful of hives so not going to buy Kilo litres.  A friend used Farmlands Feilding but they were out of stock too often and was causing him too much bother so he's making his own again.

That looks like a really good price for liquid. But I can’t find it on their website. Does it have a special name? Cheers

Only select stores have it, you’ll need to ring one to find out. They have it in a bladder inside a 20’ container, pumped out through an in-line flowmeter.

 Usually a smaller 500litre tank beside it for filling containers.

Good info thanks Dan. I’ll do a bit more research before I go ahead and convert the old hot water cylinder into a syrup mixer!
