• Hi I believe you will be correct as your 2 litres of 96.2% is 1924 mill of 100%. 2000 multiplied by 96.2 divided by 100 = 1924 mill of 100% Then 1924 mill

Hi

of 100%.
2000 multiplied by 96.2 divided by 100 = 1924 mill of 100%
Then 1924 mill divided by 5000 multiplied by 100 = 38.48%

Subject: [Distillers] Alcohol % and sugar.

Regulations force me to create liquor that is only allowed a
deviation in alcohol % with 0.3%

Measuring alcohol in whisky, wodka and gin is piece of cake with
a calibrated alcoholmeter.

When it comes to sugared liquors it's becoming a different story,
you will require a trial destillation to determine the alcohol
content.

This trial destillation is done with the "Famous Alkodest" and is a
bit of a pain.

I have now ordered a big volumetric flask and some smaller ones to
do the following: I'll take 2 liter of alcohol (96.2 certified)
This I'll fill up with 3 liters of a mixture of water, sugar and
concentrate. So I'll have 5 liter in total containing 1924 ml
alcohol. I think this is 38.48 % Alc by vol.

If I make calculations this way I can avoid the Alkodest.
Does anybody see any problem with this ?

Thanks
