OK - it is 1.036!!! I was hoping to get it down to about 1.02 but I may have to settle for

for OG and the h...

So I did use a refract but corrected with OG - good point though I could throw my hydrometer in
there to get a more accurate reading. I'll do that tomorrow!! I heard that since the gravity is

1.096 and I used 3724 which is very slow as it is....I aerated and swirled periodically to keep
