Re: 80% ARC??
- Hi Morgan,
If you fill the sensor tube with 80% stuff to start with it should
in theory keep the ABV at that. This may require tuning the packing
height and sensortube length a bit to keep it there as the first
stuff that reaches top is usually close to 95.6% ABV.
Even better alternative is to go electronic and keep the temperature
close to top (maybe 10-20cm down) in a value that corresponds 80%
