I don't have a proper floor scale to weigh tote and I have a 264 gallon tote full of 192 proof alcohol. How would I go about determining proof gallons and total volume after proofed down to 80? Correct me if I'm wrong, but here are my calculations... 264 x 96%=25,344 25,344 x 2 = 50,688 50,688/100 = 506.88 PG From there, I then determined total pounds of 506.88 PG at 192 P. 506.88/.28397 = 1,784.98 pounds At 80 P, 506.88/.10093 = 5,022.09 pounds So, does that mean I need to add 5,022.09-1,784.98 pounds or 3,237.32 pounds of RO water? Cheers.
I've been having some real trouble understanding which hydrometers are necessary for operations. Does anyone know of a guide for the hydrometers needed for operation? I know we need to have NIST-certified equipment for proofing and gauging, but don't understand the ranges of SG for which we need. Can anyone share a list of ranges, use, quantity and whether NIST certified of your hydrometers? We're ready to spend on these, but want to make sure we're spending correctly. I've seen a few posts on this, but there seems to be some variance on how many hydrometers most folks purchase and the number that are NIST certified vs. those that are not. Thanks for your input. Any recommendations on where to buy (aside from Cole Parmer) are appreciated as well.
