Subject: specific gravity measurement problem

Gordon Hester wrote in Digest #165 that he had accidentally
measured the S.G. of only 2 gallons of wort. Since water has an S.G.
of 1.000 ( it is, in fact, the reference for the specific gravity scale)
multiplying the S.G. obtained for the 2 gallons by 0.4 is exactly the
correction needed for the S.G. of the 5 gallon batch. This of course
assumes that the wort is thermodynamically ideal.
BTW, I am really enjoying reading the digest, and am learning lots.
