4/25/2007 – What is the correct equation for determining A.B.V. (alcohol by volume). Do you divide the difference between starting and ending gravity by 8 or by 7.36? I see both numbers in the answers.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: By taking the difference between your starting and ending gravity (in points) you then divide by 7.63 That will get you very close indeed.For example, The OG measured at 1.080, and the beer stopped fermentation with a FG measurement of 1.018. The difference is 62 "points". 62 divided by 7.63 = 8.12% acohol by volume.Another way is . . .

7/11/2006 – I have been making wine for 3 years now. This is the first year I am paying attention to the acidity and I am confused. When titrating I am getting a .25% tartaric acidity. This is for cherry wine. I know that the range is suppose to be .55-.65 according to the acidity kit I have. I titrated with 1/10N. sodium hydroxide. To me this seems . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It sounds like it is low on acid to me. A good thing to do is to give it a taste...does it seem high our low? Another is to take a small amount, like a cup or so, and add some acid blend. See if your readings go up or down.
11/27/2004 – My Dad has made wine for over 50 years, and since he is a chemist, he always tested the sugar and alcohol content at work. Now that he is retired, he just "wings it", and has been coming up with some, shall we say, interesting concoctions. I want to get him some testing gadgets for Xmas, but I know next to nothing about wine making. What would . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The first tool is a hydrometer, and a hydrometer testing jar to use with it. Another useful tool is an acid testing kit. A vinometer is also nice to have. All these tools are inexpensive.
10/15/2004 – I had a question about your Acid Test Kit, what else is in the solution besides Phenolthaeline?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sodium hydroxide, phenolthaeline indicator solution, syringe, and instructions. You can also buy the phenolthaeline solution separately if you like.
7/7/2004 – Is there a way to measure the alcohol content of wine after it is fermented and aged?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: If it is a dry (not sweet) wine, it can be measured with a vinometer. Here are some links
