1.5 quarts of 1.064 + 3 gallons of .990 wine = 3.38 gallons of .998 wine.

Thanks Yooper. I'm actually going to add the 1.5 quarts to my 3 gallon carboy then add the wine to fill it to the top to make a total of 3 gallons "I will just save the leftover dry wine and drink it later. So with your calculations, I'm assuming it will be around a 1.00 or a bit over.

Its probably because I just finished my degree, but could you show your work (respectfully) I was wondering how to do calculations like this myself. I assume you are taking gravity points per gallon in some sort of algebraic formula.1.5 quarts of 1.064 + 3 gallons of .990 wine = 3.38 gallons of .998 wine.

Yep. It's a simple ratio.64 gravity points in 1.5 quarts. 64/(4/1.5)= 24 points per gallon. 24/3 gallon= 8 points added per gallon. .990+.008=.998

1.5 qts x 1.064 = 1.596

11.88 + 1.596 = 13.476

13.476/(12 qts + 1.5 qts) = .998
