Default 12oz vs 22oz

Hello Folks, I have a question regarding alcohol in bottles.
I brewed a Belgium wit. 5 weeks ago. The abv was 7.9 %. I bottle my beer in a 22 oz bottles, instead of 12oz. My question is since I bottle in 22 oz, does it mean I have almost 15% alcohol in a bottle. Or is it still 7.9%

That's 7.9% alcohol by Volume. That means that for any given volume, 7.9% of that is alcohol. So in 12oz, nearly 1oz of it is alcohol. In 22oz, there is 1.75oz of alcohol...

Alcohol is measured by volume. So if you had one ounce of beer, it would be 7.9% in that ounce.

a 22 is more beer, but the liquid still has the same amount of alcohol in it.

Hi adarelme.

It's still 7.9% whether you put it in a 12oz or 22oz bottle. There is more alcohol in the 22oz bottle but the percentage per ounce is the same. It's like buying liquor. You can 90 proof whiskey in a pint or a 1.75 liter bottle. Same alcohol per ounce, just a lot more ounces in the big guy.

Hope that helps.

YOU ARE NOT! Smarter than a 5th grader.


sorry...I had to..

Cent is Latin for hundred. Per-Cent or % is a means of comparing how many out of 100. In Example: 7.9% means that almost 8 out of every 100 parts (let's say Ounces) in the bottle are alcohol. So weather you have 1 oz or 1billion ounces, it's still the same %.

You'll deffinately get drunk quicker off of the double deuce!

Yes. Just like if you bought a pint of vodka and a gallon of vodka. Same vodka, but one is in a bigger bottle.

Like coke. You can buy a 16 ounce bottle or a big gulp. It's still coke. Just lots more coke in the bigger bottle.
