I want to do this rhubarb wine recipe but I have 5.649 kg of rhubarb instead of 1.25kg in the recipe; can anyone tell me how much sugar I need to add to my amount and what to water to? Preferably in metric? Thank you very much in advance.

You should check out some of the resources in the pinned post at the top of r/learnmath if you have the time. This is something any adult should be able to figure out themselves in under 30 seconds.

The recipe calls for equal quantities of sugar and rhubarb, so it’s obvious you need 5.649 kg of sugar.

The recipe calls for a ratio of 4.5/1.25 water:rhubarb. If the amount of water is x, you want:

x/5.649 = 4.5/1.25

x = 5.649 * 4.5/1.25

Plug that into a calculator and you get 20.3364 litres of water if you want to be exact.
Multiply everything by 4.5
by
1:1 ratio between sugar and rhubarb. So an equal weight. (5.649 kg)

1.25:4.5 ratio between rhubarb and water. So divide 5.649/1.25 and then multiply that by 4.5 liters (using a calculator) and that should suffice
