Hi I am trying to work out alcohol content. On my hydrometer at the 40 point it 6.5%. This means if it dropped to 1.000 then the alcohol content would be 6.5%. Obviously it would not go that low. With wine It does go below this value. I wanted to work out the alcohol content for this but the Hydrometer does not display below 5%.
If the Starting value of the wine is 1.080 (12.8%) and it goes below
1.000 then the alcohol content would I asume be higher. Is there a
calculation that I could use. There are websites that can adjust
readings for temprature adjustment but not a SG to alcohol
