Apparently no direct relationship between Brix and water content??? Answered
Could anyone explain to me why there is not a direct relation between the Brix scale and the water contents scale on my honey refractometer? At the low end of the Brix scale (60-70), the match is perfect, but not at higher Brix. I suspect this has something to do with the fact that there is a non-linear relationship between sugar concentration and density. It would, however, be very nice to know the proper theoretical background... :-)
Any help will be greatly appreciated, as I have been unable to find any information at all on the web. Thanks!
