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 to measure is shown below:The OG measured at 1.080, and the beer stopped fermentation with a FG measurement of 1.018. Simply subtract the FG from the OG and multiply by 131.1.080 - 1.018 = 0.062 x 131 = 8.12% alcohol by volumeI see no need to calculate any closer than that!Let's do it for a wine (same principle):OG=1.090FG=1.000=0.090*131=11.79% Alcohol by Volume (ABV)
11/8/2006 – I actually purchased one of these floating thermometers from another company. In the middle of boiling a Diamond Knot I.P.A. kit up the tip melted off the thermometer. Most of the glass settled and the rubber melted into our stock pot, is this dangerous? Can we save the beer somehow?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Hard to say. Ours don't have rubber, or a tip that can melt off, so it's different. Not sure what you have there. If it's a food grade thermometer that you have, it it likely fine, just let the glass and such settle to the bottom and discard. If it's not food grade, well...

11/4/2006 – Can I leave this thermometer floating in my brewpot until temp. reaches 170 degrees when It's time to take the grain bag out?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Absolutely. That is one important use of it. It can take temperatures higher than that.
10/15/2005 – Is the floating thermometer made out of glass and if so is it a shock resistant glass such as pyrex and can it withstand minor bumbs such as a wood mash paddle bumping into during mixing or would I have to remove it during a ramping process. How responsive is the temp change, and what is the liquid used example ethanol or mercury?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, it has a glass housing. It can take slight knocks, but it is not meant for banging around. Fairly responsive. It uses alcohol, not mercury.
10/15/2005 – With the Floating thermometer how does it float(Vertically like a Hydrometer, or Horizontilly like an empty plastic bottle that is sealed)? Where do you read the temp from(The side ie Lengthwise or from the Top)?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It is weighted on one end so that it floats vertically, like a hydrometer. You read the temperature along the side (by lifting it up).
2/1/2005 – Where can I buy the hops to brew the beer? I live in Plainview, Texas....would love to brew my own. But, I need the ingredients to brew it. will buy your equipment, so....where can I buy the goodies to brew it?
