I found some Piloncillo at the store the other day,and I was curious ast o whether anyone has any idea of the SG?

I would assum less than 1.046, such as refined sugar, but not as little as Black Strap Molasses.

So, does anyone have any information on the SG, p/p/g, of Piloncillo sugar?

Thanks!:mug:

Just weigh 1 oz and dissolve it in 1 cup of water and take a gravity reading. If that is too much effort, I'd guess it is similar to brown sugar ~42 pppg.
