Yeah, you're right. 0.88945 is kg solids per liter. Talk about a big "doh!" Specific gravity is a ratio with respect to density of water. In order for SG to be unitless, the numerator must have the same units as the denominator, i.e. kg/L. I feel like an idiot. whew.

FWIW, When I had to add a pound of Lyle's Golden Syrup to my Old SPeckled Hen I bought it in 11 (fluid) Ounce jars.

So I weighed the jar full, poured out the syrup and re-weighed the empty jar. The delta was exaclty 1 pound.

So for my money...22 Ounces of maple syrup should be very close to 2 lbs.
