I made my last brew the same as all the rest. Put the same amount of sugar...etc.....

Either our alcohol tolerance is getting better or it's pretty weak. We each had 7 or 8 and we weren't really feeling much.

It bubbled and went on like normal.

Any thoughts????

What are the ingredients as well as the beginning and ending gravities? With this information the alcohol content of your beer can be determined.

ABW = 76.08(OG - FG) / (1.775 - OG)

That's the equation. If you want to take it to ABV ...

ABV = ABW(FG / .784)

Hope that helps.

Though, I believe you can also do 131 * (OG - FG) to find Alcohol percentage (at least that's what one of the spreadsheets do)
