      Advise wanted please,

      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
