so this is my first homebrew that wasn't a brewers best kit.. I made a honey lager and my OG was 1.061 and my FG is at 1.011...is there a general formula to figure out you alcohol percentage? thanks for hte help!!!
I was pretty sure that it's times 131. Can anyone confirm which is correct?What Ollllo said....
basically - starting gravity - final gravity times 105
105 is for by weight ( I edited too slow, sorry)I was pretty sure that it's times 131. Can anyone confirm which is correct?
Edit: the calculator above comes out at 6.3% so I think 131 will give a closer estimate of abv than 105 (If you back into the calculation on the calculator on brewhaus it's OG-FG*126)
Thats the word I was looking for! I just drew a blank when writing the post. It seems the extract kit I'm using isn't very clever. It told me to add half a percent to take into account the priming sugar addition, and also told me a weird way towork out the ABV which comes out just wrong.Not just neglectable, but also negligible.
It really is not a factor.
