maybe this will help those that have trouble figuring out there hydrometer.
Your scale is off. Read it closely, you have some numbers wrong.
Good idea, just tweak it a bit and you might have a cool goodie!
where....i dont see it...
never mind.... i see it.
To much wine James?
julie remove this post, i will send you one to check out.
just change the name and use it as a chart for feeding sugar to a port style wine during ferment
I see two errors....
1) sg numbers below 1.000 are wrong. should be .998 rather than .098
2) I don't agree with the location of the comment "high alcohol level in this range". If the starting sg is 1.020, a final sg of .986 means 4.5%. Not high alcohol.
1) I have never seen a wine drop below .990. Find it tough to believe that one would reach .980
2) I think the starting sg comment needs to cover a wider range. 12% alcohol means sg 1.082, and final sg .992. Also many people believe that fruit wines should typically be under 12%.
first off, a new one is in the works with lots of corrections.
i constantly have wines go beyond .990 , some up to . 983 on a digital hydrometer.
i love my wines at about 15 % and try for higher.
please post a link to info on your digital hydrometer - I would love to have one!
