Hey, i was making my kilju and my initial gravity reading before adding yeast was 1.070... One day later the reading is 1.080. I let the must sit in the hydrometer for about an hour and triwled the hydrometer and everything.. Im wanting to stepfeed my kilju but im not sure which reading i should use. I used invert syrup btw

Looks like all the sugars were not mixed well. use 2nd reading.

post EXACT recipe and we can probably estimate the OG, to tell you which number is closer to the truth.
