    I think factory beet might be watered but Jelo can tell us why it would seem diffrent
    Estee, I read somewhere once that the different alcohols are absorbed differently, percieved time wise that is. Maybe these homebrew dis tings are like wine and champagne that after three quick glasses the cheecks get a lovely hue of blush, not that they are that strong but maybe the body absorbs the 5 or so percent quicker?

    Anyone remember Crossbow Cider? Two of those when you are thirsty and drink quickly made one's knees wobble. They were 6% I think.

    Here goes for the best easiest crackling ever
    Go to UTube and look up a guy by the name of Falk Urban "Best Crackling"
    POOPAH THIS AND YOU WILL BE THE LOSER,
    I go one step further and add a half a teaspoon of baking powder to the mix. I bought pork skin & prepped it like this and then froze it from freezer to the oven it works
    Its amazing

    OK.

    Gravity checks using a hydrometer starts deviating when you don't consider residual sugars and dissolved solids such as starches and proteins. Also it must be done at the same temperature EVERY TIME.

    So on point 1: density of the liquid. Any home brew ale will contain unfermented sugars, yeast, starches and proteins. This will give a HIGHER reading than the real alcohol present. In other words, your hydrometer will indicate 1.020 and lower alcohol, when instead it should read 1.010 and 1% higher alcohol. Commercial beers contain almost no residual sugars, yeast, starches or proteins due to filtration, centrifuge clarification, and the addition of sucrose. They also pre-extract the maltose and inject that as a filtered syrup to increase efficiency. So if they say 4%, it will be 4% within a 10% deviation.

    Point 2: density changes with temp as we know, and hydrometer readings must always be done at precisely 21degC.

    So it is very possible that your 4.5% is a lot closer to 6%..............

    Thanks Jelo, I do the adjustment for temp at hydro reading, is this not accurate enough. I am lucky that I am not paying excise on alcohol % then

    I use a refractometer and then rely on proper brewing software to provide an accurate estimate.

    The only real way to be sure is a lab, and that costs moolah.

    If I look at my hydrometer through a prism will that refraction be sufficient. Asking for a mate
