BEHOLD!

The "unscientific" calculation: (1.06-1.05) * 131.25 = 6.565% =~ 6.6%

Thats one thing about using vodka that sucks too: if you use the cheap stuff, you get nasty flavors. But using top shelf seems like a waste. I don't even like vodka but for the price I'd rather drink...

I'm guessing it comes from the mass of ethanol/ the mass of CO2 times the density of ethanol (46.069/44.01*.789). That gives you ~1.326 which, if you want an output that is 100 times the actual...
