RE: Brix

Well, Jim, most of the sites I found referred to the sugar content of
grapes, wine and related products.  This site gave a slightly different
http://www.milnefruit.com/info/definitions.php :BRIX: is the measurement by
which the percentage by weight of soluble solids is expressed as the percent
of sucrose in a solution.  

I don't know if that helps.

Anybody know about brix? Like, brix is measured in "degrees"; how does this
associate with "percent," if it does? And, are there established benchmarks
published somewhere--so one can compare apples and oranges? 
I'm getting a refractometer [the organic guys say you can determine the
fertilizer needs of plants by measuring the brix of leaf sap], so it would
likely be more interesting if I knew what I was doing.
