Presenter – Eric Wilkes (AWRI)

Description – One of the most common questions post-vintage tends to be why were my sugar to alcohol conversions out? This webinar will review why the approximation of 1°Bé = 1% is more often the exception than the rule and factors which can influence alcohol conversion rates in ferments. It will also review the methods for measuring juice dissolved solids and sugars and the correct way to calibrate and apply them.
