      Yup.
      20% = 960 SG
      40% = 920 SG

      Easy to work out.
      1 litre water = 1 kg = 1,000g = 1,000 degrees of the hydrometer.
      1 litre alcohol = 800g = 800 degrees of the hydrometer.

      20% alc = 200ml = 160g
      80% water = 800ml = 800g
      Total weight = 800 + 160 = 960g = 960 degrees hydrometer.

      If you're trying to use a beer/wine hydrometer then you're out of
      luck. Their readable scale is out of range (they're not long
      enough). Buy a spirit hydrometer (alcoholometer).

      Slainte!
      regards Harry
