Spanish term or phrase: GRADO PLATO
SPAIN. I'm tempted just to call this "plate degree"... It appears in a seemingly interminable list of different types of units of measure and so far I'm stumped. The text sample I'm posting below provides a definition of the term:


"SE ENTIENDE POR “GRADO PLATO” LA CANTIDAD EN GRAMOS DE EXTRACTO SECO PRIMITIVO DEL MOSTO ORIGINAL DE LA CERVEZA CONTENIDO EN 100 GRAMOS DE DICHO MOSTO A LA TEMPERATURA DE 20º C."

"Plato Gravity Scale is a measurement of the concentration of dissolved solids in a brewery wort. Degrees Plato (°P) is used to quantify the concentration of extract (mainly sugars derived from malt but also including other soluble material in wort) as a percentage by weight. A 10°P wort will contain 10 g of extract per 100 g of wort."

Nothing to do with the philosopher; it's named after one Fritz Plato. It should be degree(s) Plato with a capital P.

And if you're interested (which I expect you're not), Fritz Plato (1858-1938) was a German chemist.
