I want to brew a really good NA IPA for my pregnant wife (we have not found a good hoppy NA beer to purchase). After doing some research, I have confirmed that it is as simple as I expected. Brew beer, ferment, cook off alcohol which boils at 173-ish. Articles have said 30 min should be sufficient. But as the healthy development of my child is at stake, I would like to have reliable verification.
Question: how can I reliably confirm that I have removed most of the alcohol? Will a gravity measurement be accurate? In theory, the new, post alcohol cook-off, FG would be very close to the OG. Correct?

It ain't all burritos and strippers, my friend.

No, it would be higher than with alcohol, but lower than the OG, because there are a lot less sugars than there were before fermentation.
