When we read a hydrometer and it reads 2, it means 2 degrees Brix, not 2%. the Brix scale and percent scale are very close when we are reading at relatively low sugar contents as found in sap. the higher up the scale you go the farther the 2 scales diverge. That is why when we get to syrup density you see that 66 does not equal 86.
