BRAUN vs BOSCH
Suspecting that the Braun handmixer lacks shear power
we set them up for a definitive test, emulsifying the
same 7x recipe (flavour oils / gum / water) in a
controlled lab environemnt with minimal variables.
After 5 mins mixing we made up Composition A from each
machine's output. With the Braun's Composition A already
exhibiting hints of oily slick, we perceive the Bosch to
be the outright winner.
We intend to monitor the state of the 2 Composition A's
over the following weeks, to see if this is definitive.
Using the Braun's whisk attachment & closely fitting beaker
as accessories on the Bosch (superior RPMs / wattage) might
be the best solution.
TO DO: get sticky labels, more plastic flagons for syrup,
research glass & plastic methods of storing compositions A=B
POST-LAB REPORT 26/12/05
Checked in on the 2x Composition A's stored in jam jars on lab
window ledge. As suspected, Brauns' Comp.A is already showing
signs of emulsification breakdown (significant oiliness on the
surface) while the Bosch's Comp.A holds strong, with only a tiny
