Hey all,

i just started my first batch last Thursday and would like to know if there is any way to figure out the final ABV once bottled/conditioned?

Thanks

Sorry if this question has been asked a lot in the past......

Andy

+1, as long as you took gravity readings you'll be able to calculate your ABV pretty closely.

Temp will also effect your readings. 60 degrees is the hydro's "zero scale"

Here is a good temp correction calculator.

Priming sugar adds about a quaerter to half a point on top of the pre bottled abv
