We have studied the β-decay of Al with a novel detector setup at the focal plane of the MARS separator at the Texas A&M University to resolve existing controversies about the proton intensities of the IAS in Mg and to determine the absolute proton branching ratios by combining our results to the latest γ-decay data. Experimental technique, results and the relevance for nova nucleosynthesis are discussed.
