Making a Standard % Brix (Sucrose) Solution
To make a Brix Solution, follow the procedure below:
- Place container (such as a glass vial or dropper bottle that has a cover) on an analytical balance to see how much it weighs and take note.
- Weigh out the high purity sucrose in grams directly into a beaker
- Add distilled or deionized water to the beaker so the total weight of the solution is 100g
- Note: Solutions above 65% may need to be vigorously stirred or shaken and heated in a water bath to roughly 40°C (104°F). Remove solution when sucrose has dissolved and allow to cool before use
