Hi I found that where it stays 10% (in beer solution) the brix is only 2.5 which seems wrong?


So the summary is with one of these triple scales, where I dont have an original SG, how do I approximate the ABV after the fact?

OK, I don't use or understand Brix (except maybe with lego) but I suspect you are outta luck with the 'after the fact' part. The process as I do it with sugar washes for distillation requires the original gravity and the final gravity. Then it's just final minus original times 131.

Was this a sugar wash?

If so, you can get the ppg for sucrose (points per gallon per pound)
And work that out if you

If grain, approximate with maybe 60% efficiency
And calculate what the og should have been.

Can also approximate at 75-80% attenuation depeding on yeast strain.
