Re: Spirit collection short of target. Why?
- Thanks to all for the help.
The question was brought up about how I came up with the 17% yield
reading and the answer to that would be by using my hydrometer. SG at
start is around 1.115 and finishes at .978. I'm also figuring this in
Again thanks for the help.
