If I combine two parts white granulated sugar and one part water (by volume), how much 2:1 sugar syrup will I end up with? Alternatively, if I boil down a 1:1 sugar syrup (say 16 cups water and 16 cups sugar), at what final reduced volume will I have achieved a 2:1 solution?

Bonus question: Will I have produced an inverted syrup if I boil down a 1:1 solution to end up with a 2:1 solution? Can I BWB process it in sterilized jars and keep it on the shelf with a reasonable expectation of stability?
