rkirk Posted July 13, 2011 Share Posted July 13, 2011 We are very new to creating rum and have been trying to find a way to test the proof of our rum after adding sugar for our flavored rums. I know using a standard alcohometer won't work after adding sugar as I am sure everyone else does too. My question is how much of an effect does adding sugar to a 80 proof spirit really have and what is the best way to test it. We always carbon filter our spirit diluted to 80 proof before adding sugar. We know we can make simple syrup and add our sugar this way to get the proper proof but the flavor we produce is not what we are looking for. Any help would be appreciated.
