Default hydrometer calculation

Des wrote in :
Hi I am trying to work out alcohol content. On my hydrometer at the 40
point it 6.5%. This means if it dropped to 1.000 then the alcohol
content would be 6.5%. Obviously it would not go that low. With wine
It does go below this value. I wanted to work out the alcohol content
for this but the Hydrometer does not display below 5%.

If the Starting value of the wine is 1.080 (12.8%) and it goes below
1.000 then the alcohol content would I asume be higher. Is there a
calculation that I could use. There are websites that can adjust
readings for temprature adjustment but not a SG to alcohol conversion.


Erm ...

Des, this group is for "homebrewing" of radio equipment (transmitters,
receivers, amplifiers, accessories), and has nothing to do with
fermentation or fermentation products.
