I think he meant big in the sense of high gravity, not batch size.

I was mostly logging the TA readings for future reference, but if it doesn't correlate... one
less thing to do. Still, I'd be interested in at least knowing what this other method is, just

interesting, though he says "White ... devised a new method of measuring TA in honey that

Since you're using Schramm, try his titration method, page 68. It takes a bit more effort but
it's not hard, I don't even bother converting it, just log how much NaOH it takes, 5.5-6.5 mL

Use a ~1/4" drill bit and put it onto the rollers until they're all torn up, took me about
about 10 minutes. If you hold it at the right angle the rollers will spin around. You should
end up with a si...
