Re: Do Hydrometers lose accuracy?

Check your thermo, make sure your liquid temp is actually correct for your calibration temp. make sure the paper aint slipped, etc etc. I have a carlson that seems to be pretty legit. Had it for a hot minute. Knock on wood.

Strip like that 3 times, then do a big ol spirit run and voila, 5g at 125 proof. Ymmv but you get the idea. I do this with my double keg setup in a slightly larger amt an...

Re: Breaking down cracked corn WITHOUT heating?

Probably dont go talk to the parents. Because if it was someone else or something else - talking to them about such activity, well that paints a target on ya.
