I've been dissolving 5 lbs, granulated sugar per 5 gallons fresh pressed cider for the past few years with good results. This year I would like to try liquid corn sugar, which I think is also called high fructose corn syrup to skip the step of dissolving.

What is the equivalent amount of corn sugar syrup to 5 lbs granulated? Where do you buy corn sugar syrup? Cant find it.

Ok....I wasnt sure on the high fructose sugar. I think what I need is a liquid dextrose. There is a product made by Cargill called Clearsweet. Now if I could only find who sells it.

Now that I found where to get Corn Sugar in 50 lb quantity, Does anyone know if the ratio is the same or different assuming I used one lb granulated cane sugar to one gallon cider?
