What Do My Murphy Cup/Float Readings Mean For Me?

If the hydrometer reading is LOWER than the dial’s reading, your syrup’s sugar density is LOWER than 66.9º BRIX.  Therefore, keep boiling.  (59 – 60 = -1. So this sample is 1º BRIX lower than 66.9º BRIX.)

If the hydrometer reading MATCHES the dial’s reading, your syrup’s sugar density is PERFECT! (66.9º BRIX)  It is now time to bottle.

If the hydrometer reading is HIGHER than the dial’s reading, your syrup’s sugar density is
HIGHER than 66.9º BRIX.  Time to add sap.  (61 – 60 = 1. So this sample is 1º BRIX higher than 66.9º BRIX.)
