Don't be afraid to try something different. The Ark was built by an amateur and the Titanic was built by a group of experienced engineers.

This is not string theory physics here. As previously stated, DRAIN THE HORN MORE FREQUENTLY. Not shouting, here. No italics available.
As also stated, one possibility is the position of the water key is likely in a different location on the tuning slide and may be accumulating more condensation. That is one of the reasons why Rowuk mentioned posture.
You also could be "spitting" more into the horn when tonguing. Play the mouthpiece only for a few minutes and if you see dribble coming out of the shank, you are spitting too much.

This is the Rowuk way:
1) Weigh the horn dry (connect a hair dryer with a funnel and let it blow through the horn for 30 minutes, putting the horn in the clothesdryer for the same amount of time is equivalent)
2) take the 50ml sip
4) weigh the HORN
5) empty the spit valve
6) weigh the horn again
This way we know how much of the 50ml ends up in the horn, how much gets to the spitvalve and how much DOESN'T get emptied.
Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
Not a flaw in my design asall. People are OBSERVING they are using spit valves more. So the experimentshould be measured using the valves. BUT I do like the idea of your methodologyas well. I think BOTH should be done and compared, but here is the point ofboth of our experiments. My null hypothesis is both measurement methods willdemonstrate that the bore size has no effect on the weight of spit, no matterhow the spit is weighed.
OK rowuk... I'll include you as my co-author.
