Something isn't adding up here w/ panty dropper...

Postby Benredbeard » Sat Mar 02, 2019 9:54 am

I'm making a first-time panty dropper. So soaked the berries in 75%, drained, sugared all good.

Now it says to add the syrup to taste, and then proof down to 40%, ok, hey WAIT A SEC. Won't the proof hydrometer's reading be off since we already dumped in a bunch of sugar? Do I proof down volumetrically instead (estimating by volume)?
Happy bees, home brews, and two green thumbs.

and I though you were going to say "Why didn't her panties drop?"
but yes you'll have to go by volume..

Things are not always as they seem

Maybe you were waiting to see the panties drop and you waited in vain; but she was not wearing any.

Be bold, my man!

I once drank half a bottle and I didn't get laid, so I reallly don't get what this is all about. All of that aside if you want to proof a sugar laced spirit you need to do one of 2 things. You can get close by doing the math of what was the proof of the alcohol I dumped I to the mix, in that case you estimate what the fruit soaked up.

If you want it exactly you bench still it. Take a sample distill it and take that proof. Lots of fun.

Not the point.

Did your panties drop?
