Well I have never measured. And because this is evaporated cane juice rather than ,,,,say a "C" strike "raw" sugar product...there is no real way to figure the gravity/brix from batch to batch unless one takes a measurement,,,,as the amount of sucrose and fructose can vary from crop to crop,,,,season to season,,,,,much like any other fruit or crop or what have you.....But Dnderhead helped me reckon that 10lbs of panela may be the equivalent of 8 pounds of refined (plus or minus)......I typically don't really care what I get as I will get what I get and I don't get upset
And depending on the way I run my still,,,,,my yield can also vary. But I collect about 2 to 2.5 liters...and with that boiler charge I add back last run feins..
Did I say that clearly???as Friday is upon me
