Hummingbird Help needed

Is there anyone who makes their own hummingbird nectar?
Eleanor Lachman gave me her recipe of 3 parts water to 1 part sugar to 
attract them. Then she switched to 4 parts water to 1 part sugar once they 
had plenty of flower nectar to eat in her garden.  

My question is when heating it is there a set number of minutes to boil the 
water?  I can't put my hands on my bird books!!  HELP!
