Pat, how's the new gig going?

Really good. I had about 20 years experience in doing purchasing and scheduling for an upholstered furniture plant before so it's kinda like riding a bike for me. Right now is kinda hectic because we are getting a software system installed but for the moment we are just trying to run things with spreadsheets and quickbooks. Anxiously awaiting new software.

HA!! Good catch Pat!! No Hocus Pocus necessary!

So, by drinking 2 glasses each with 4oz of 100 proof Rum and 4oz of water (reducing each glass to 50 proof) would be the same as drinking 1 glass with 4oz of 100 Proof Rum?

I know when I clean wood with a light mix of 1 gal of 12% and 4 gals of water it takes a longer dwell than a 50/50 mix. So i'm no scientist but I can see how much weaker my mix is at that lighter solution vs 50/50 mix.

Im sure there is a bartenders forum that will tinkle your fancy more.
but why not answer…. Proof is twice the alcohol by volume. Not weight. So you had two drinks that were 25% alcohol and one drink that was 50% alcohol.
You just drank 2 slower than 1.
IDK why you are hung up on volume when it comes to Sodium Hypochlorite …….

This is the biggest headache thread I've seen in a while.


Take two shot glasses of whiskey and put them in 12 oz glasses . fill one glass with coke . which glass has a stronger content of booz? now do the same with bleach ?

Not sure - after reading this thread I drank them both before I had a chance to look lol

The issue is the dilution is by VOLUME. Yes a gallon of 12% SH becomes 6% at a 50/50 SOLUTION by VOLUME but technically it's still composed of 1 gallon of 12% and 1 gallon of water. You guys are getting hung up on the terms.

So when when we cut 12% SH 50/50 we are making a 6% solution... not 6% SH.

Now wheres that whiskey??

I don't even care as long as the stuff I'm washing comes clean and I don't kill any plants or destroy any property.
 
Good thing the subject is not Moonshine. Some would really be confused about the proof, which is 50% of the concentration. LOL:grin:

How do you think they change the proof?

Some very nice confusion here.

So red, what is the difference in a gallon of 6% sod hyp and 12%? Is it not 6 parts of sod hyp dissolved into 96 parts water?

Doing much better these days. Still have a way to go on regaining my strength, mobility has improved drastically. I have been spend the last few months catching up on repair work in the shop. Getting ready to build another trailer rig. This one will have a recycling system on it. Here is a picture of the unit.
