Hydrometer Tests

Many of you may be familiar with the work of Johnny Drejer (Drecon.dk).  For those that aren’t please visit his site and familiarise yourselves with his Hydrometer method.

Hydrometer Tests by the fat rum pirateLike Johnny I offer no guarantee that my readings are 100% accurate and I can only use already published results as a baseline for mine.  Also, like Mr Drejer I am not doing these experiments in order to call out “bad” or “good” rum or individual rum companies.  I am doing this to inform and also to improve my own reviews.
