ABV is a function of your specific gravity before and after fermentation. There are calculators on line that will tell you the ABV if you enter the OG and FG. You'll need a hydrometer to figure out what those numbers are.

How do you brew, Extract vs AG? Extract is easier since you byass the mash. AG depends on your efficiencies, which is dependent on everything.

Post your recipe and someone can help show you how to calculate.

Need to know extract or AG. Either way find a brewing software such as beer smith to help with calculations.
