How to “handle” water evaporation during phase heating
A few questions about this, please:
-1- When we see in a formulary a recipe calling for, say, 50g of water as part of a phase that will be heated, is the assumption that we *start* with 50g, and that this 50g will be reduced a fair amount as a result of the heating, with the true amount incorporated likely being closer to 45g? Or is the recipe truly calling for 50g of water to be incorporated?
-2- Assuming the recipe is truly calling for 50g of water to be incorporated, how does one accurately account for this (i.e., “pad” it) so that the heated water amount will equal 50g? Is one meant to re-weigh the beakers just before blending the phases (adding extra water to replace that lost to evaporation)?
