This formula does not hold true for 60 degrees F. For 60 F I get a correction
factor of -0.000306, decidedly not 0 as it should be for a hydrometer
calibrated to read acurateley @ 60. I plotted the function using data
points that I got out of the back of Byron Burch's Brewing quality Beers.
The function that I was looking at was decidedly _not_ linear.
Here are the data points that I got from the book (reprinted without
Degrees F Correction
The point is that one of the two are wrong, the table or the formula. I too
would like to see a formula for SG correction, but, I would like it to agree
with a little more of the published (alright I only looked at 1 source) data.
