Posted in thread: Date sugar addition on 09-28-2014 at 06:04 PM
I meant to say the whole fruit but was asking specifically about their sugar content in
comparison to their weight. Go figure, I was searching the forum wrong and my google fu was
weak last night. The...

So I know I've read somewhere 3# of dates contributes something like 2# of sugar. Can anyone
quantify this? I have 13 gallons of date brown that started at 1.069 and have fermented to
