Why does table 5 PG per pound end?

Recommended Posts

I just stripped some wine for brandy and was left with a bucket at 58.1 proof and the dang TTB Table 5 showing proof gallons per pound doesn't go any lower than 60 proof?  Anyone know why?  Am I missing something?

Not sure why it doesn't.

However, I never use table 5, I always use table 4. It has much more detail (going down to .1 pound increments instead of 1 pound) and covers the whole range. To get the number in table 5 just divide 1 by the number in table 4.

To get PGs or WGs from table 4, you just multiply by the decimal instead of dividing by the number provided in table 5.
