Shaking only accelerates the processes by increases surface area for CO2 absorption. Shake all

I don't think I understand, if it was all simple sugars, why wouldn't it be able to dip below
1.000 with an OG of 1.050?If you were to put your hydrometer into a 100% ethanol you would
actually get a ...

Certainly not uncommon for high ABV beverages like wine to finish below 1.000, after all
