Measuring your beers alcohol

You can find our your home brewed beers alcohol content by simply plugging in your measured OG and FG and plugging it into this equation.

     *Copy the equation to Google search to quickly get your answer.

 (((1.05 x (OG - TG)) / TG) / 0.79)*100 = Your beers alcohol content.
ex) OG = 1.059
      FG  = 1.015

Plug in the numbers. (((1.05 * (1.05900 - 1.01500)) / 1.01800) / 0.79) * 100 = 
and your beers alcohol content will be 5.74469672 or about 5.8%.  Mmmmm...

Don't forget to measure your Gravity when your done brewing; it is too easy to forget and before you know it all your wort is mixed with the yeast in the fermenter that has no spigot. Great.
And you should be good to go!

Let me know if you have any questions!!
