Default Mixing from 100 proof to 43 proof

1 - 750 ml jar grain alcohol @ 100 proof
500 ml liquid #1
500 ml liquid #2
1/4 cup Sugar

Equals
43 proof

Could someone of mixing knowledge verify my math?

I wouldnt want to mess up my recipe.

Looks correct to me. 100 * 750/(750+500+500) = 42.8

What does the sugar have to do with it?

Is it because it affects the molality of the solution?
I must be missing something there.

I thought proof was 2x ABV. So 750/1750 * 2.

86 proof.

Your math is good - in simplified form. I'm not sure how much of a volume increase you'd see from the sugar, but on a small level that would play in as well.

But 43 sounds right.

Oh never mind it's 100 proof not 100%....

Yeah 43 is right.

This is a homebrewing forum, not a distilling forum.

I realize that. I do homebrew, but in a crunch I figure I can rely on the cumulative knowledge here.
