Number 35 is still the clear winner.
Doug this is a very interesting experiment you've run. I'm curious about the final gravity of each of the batches as I didn't see them posted (perhaps I missed them). I'm curious to know if the Nesquik batch has the highest gravity? I'm wondering if that is why it tastes best?
Was the Hershey's syrup the sweetened or unsweetened?
Nesquik powder is mostly sugar (13 g of sugar in a 16 g serving size) so most of the 6 ounces was sugar. That works out in a gallon to be about 36 grams per liter more sugar than is in the cocoa powder batches, which would be enough to raise the gravity about 0.014. Did you get a difference in the final gravity numbers?
Thanks for conducting a cool test.
