In the words of David Hoffmann:
"In the green!"



1. To reduce the strength of an alcohol tincture:

        V[final] = V[initial] * P[initial] / P[final].

        nb: Dilute the tincture up to V[final] with pure water.

2. To increase the alcoholic strength of a tincture:

        V[2] = V[1] * (P[final]-P[1]) / (P[2]-P[final]).

        nb: Add V[2] to V[1].

            The final volume is the sum (V[1]+V[2]).
