Based on a bit of baking/ candy making experience sugar chemistry is... complicated to say the least.

As if I didn't have enough to worry about with regular brewing now I want to start making my own adjuncts.

A) making invert is not complicated. The ingredients are simple and easy to access. The rest is just adding heat and time. B) you can buy invert sugar from Adventures In Homebrewing... https://www.homebrewing.org/Beckers-Inverted-Brewing-Sugars-Invert-1--3-lb_p_10912.html

I've made inverted/golden syrup several times.
It's a good learning experience to do a couple of times.
In the future, I would just purchase it.

As stated many times before... Lyle's Golden Syrup while often used as a substitute is not the same. The Becker's brand I pointed to is the real deal brewers invert and is less expensive than Lyle's. Even then however it is much, much cheaper to make yourself.
