If there is 25g sucrose in 1oz of pure apple syrup, and I wanted to add enough to 5 gals of 1.000 cider to back sweeten to 1.008, what's the formula to figure this out?

Man, this reminds me of my 5th grade math problems. 

"If Johnny is driving his car 45 mph in a NorthEast direction for 250 miles, and Debra drives her motorcycle at 60 mph in Southwest direction for 150 miles, what location will the two meet up for coffee?"

well starbucks on 41st street of course  ;D

Not so sure of the metric folks having both Math and conversion skills.  They just have a better (easier, at least) system of weights and measures.

I will grant you that. Where I live (the rest of the universe) conversion skills have not been an evolutionary advantage for a long time. Now let's hope we can adapt if the conversional climate changes!
