i agree to this stuff. zymurgy is fun to have and i do think a good centerfold is in order. fwiw i don't listen to npr though.I personally would be a bit embarrassed to frequently use this forum and not contribute something to it's maintenance. The collective wisdom of the longtime AHA members who contribute to and moderate this forum is more than worth the price of membership. Also, I've lived in 2 states now where the active efforts of AHA and it's members have made it possible to pursue this hobby legally.It's like all those people who listen to NPR and never contrib... never mind (gotta get that membership up to date as well!)

So, in case it sucks; how do you make malt vinegar?
I'm wondering if I'm thinking about this too hard. With a known quantity of sugar going into the syrup, I wonder if I could just do a simple dilution calculation to figure out the ppg figure.
I'm thinking something like [(points)*(sugar weight) + (points)*(water weight)] / (total weight)
So if I start with 500g sugar, and the end syrup weighs 750g, that'd be
(46 points)*(500g) + 0 points*250g / 750g = 30.6 points/pound/gallon
^ This. The sugar in the pint is the same as the sugar in your starting solution. The total points in that pint are the same as that in your original 500ml + of solution.A pint's a pound the world around - Alton Brown.
as much as I love alton brown gotta call foul on this statement, and the attribution. I have no idea who said that originaly but it tweren't AB. also a pint of sugar syrup is not a pound. at 1.046 a pint is 1.046 pounds. a pint of honey weighs in at like 1.5 lbs. you can actually use this to determine gravity of a solution if you have acurate volume measurments and weight measurments.
