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 numbe
