4.48% ABV. Thats impressive. I can't quite read the name of the yeast

You are right. Don't know what I did wrong :oops:

1034 minus 10105 = 23.5 divided by 7.36 = 3.192 ABV

Or just divide the OG by 10 as a ball park figure for the ABV.

That's not very accurate. It all depends on the final gravity. Milk stout is a good example.

Indeed, not very accurate at all. But for most beers it'll tell you if the more accurate calculation is in the right area.

Helps to avoid :oops: !
