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 . . .

10/22/2006 – is there anything else you could use in place of a hydrometer jar?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sure, you can simply float your hydrometer inside your fermenter. It is more difficult to read the side that way, however.A tall bottle, a beaker, lots of things can be used to hold the sample while taking a hydrometer reading.
11/2/2005 – Do hydrometers go bad? Mine reads the same regardless of what liquid you put it in.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They break, but they do not "go bad". Make sure you have enough liquid in the test jar so that the hydrometer actually FLOATS in it, and you will get a reading.

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.
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
6/3/2003 – How do you read a hydrometer?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Very easy! Simply take a sample of your wine or beer and float the hydrometer in it. When there are sugars present (before fermentation) the hydrometer will float higher in the more dense liquid. After fermentation, the sugars are converted to alcohol, so the hydrometer sinks further down. The difference in these readings allows you to determine . . .
