Re: using sg to determine abv
What in heaven's name do you mean "what is based on assumption"?
Tony's clear reply to your original query should be printed out by us
all and pasted on the wall next to our still for reference every time
we forget some detail about how we determine the abv of a wash using
His reply is based on simple chemistry, physics and mathematics.
Of course there are a couple of assumptions in what Tony wrote - ie
the wash is pure sucrose and that concentrations of junk like
higher alcohols are too small to have a meaningful influence on the
calculations but as I recall he mentioned these.
*rant over* - sorry about that
