Default How Much Alcohol Will There Be in my home brew?

This is a common question.And there is a simple way to answer and estimate it. The easiest is to use a "triple scale hydrometer" which has a percent alcohol by volume scale right on it. You subtract the respective percentages that correspond to your OG and FG, and there you have it.
If you don't have this type of hydrometer, the following table based on the work of Balling should satisfy that question .


To use the table, look for the intersection of your OG (columns) and your FG (rows). This number is your approximate percentage of alcohol by volume.

If I ever start brewing, it's be the 1.075 + 0.998 = 10.1

You VILL fall over!
