Today in an effort to tidy up my work area, I decided to organize my glass in a new rack I put up. It wasnt until after I put a few sheets away that I realized I may have mixed float and BE. Yikes!
Other than a compatibility firing, is there a way to know for certain which is which? I do have a UV light if it will help

Float glass will have a tin side, which can be identified with a UV light (it will glow). If it’s not too many pieces, this may be an acceptable way of identifying the float (quicker than firing).
Google “identifying the tin side of glass” and you’ll find many How-Tos.
