A hydrometer works by measuring the amount of dissolved solids in a liquid before and after fermentation to determine how much sugar is converted to alcohol. This particular hydrometer is a ‘Specific Gravity’ Hydrometer. The specific gravity scale of .990 - 1.170 measures sugar solutions as compared to the density of water. This scale is most commonly used by brewers. The Specific Gravity of Water is 1.000. If you fill your test jar with water the hydrometer should read 1.000. As sugar or malt is added to the water the reading will go up. Beers usually have a starting Specific Gravity of 1.035 to 1.045 after fermentation the gravity will range from 1.000 to 1.012 depending on the amount of unfermentable sugars remaining. Table Wines generally start at 1.060 to 1.090 at completion the gravity for the dry wine will be 0.990 to 1.000 Dimensions: Length: 22.5cm Diameter (at narrowest point): 6mm Diameter (at widest point): 18mm Working Range: Specific Gravity: 0.990 - 1.170 Working Temperature: 60°F This hydrometer is accurate at a liquid temperature of 60F How To Use A Hydrometer: Fill the test tube with enough liquid to float the hydrometer in it before fermentation begins. The reading is the number on the hydrometer that intersects with the surface of the liquid. Record this reading as your Original Gravity (a.k.a. O.G., Starting Gravity). This measurement also indicates the potential alcohol if all of the sugar is fermented. After fermentation is complete, measure another sample of the liquid to determine the Final Gravity (a.k.a.: F.G., Terminal Gravity). The difference displayed is the amount of sugar that has been converted to alcohol. To determine the actual alcohol content, subtract the percentage of potential alcohol that you recorded from the Starting Gravity from the percentage of potential alcohol that you recorded from the Final Gravity. Helpful Notes: Just because a hydrometer indicates that there is potential to achieve 22% alcohol doesn’t necessarily mean that the yeast or other factors will allow it. A skilled brewer or wine maker must know their ingredients and how they will work together. GOOD LUCK AND ENJOY YOUR BREWING EXPERIENCE!
