? on simple sirup yield

RickatChow | Dec 31, 201709:08 AM

Is it normal to get more volume of simple sirup than the initial water contribution? I just made a rich simple sirup for the first time (3 cups sugar dry weight to 1.5 cups water liquid weight.)I got about 3 cups of sirup from the process. It’s viscous and very sweet so I don’t think I screwed up and accidentally started with too much water. I can see how sugar might volumize the water but I thought making simple sirup was a reducing process. Thanks.
