Alcohol By Volume

The measurement of alcohol in a beer/wine as a percentage of the volume of alcohol in the total volume of beer.

To calculate:
approx. ABV = (Final Gravity - Original Gravity) / .0075

ABV = (FG - OG)/.0075

Calculate Knowing ABW
approx. ABV = ABW * (Final Gravity / .794)

Alcohol By Weight

The measurement of alcohol in a beer/wine as a percentage of the weight of alcohol in the total volume of beer.

To calculate:
ABW = (76.08 * (Original Gravity - Final Gravity)) / (1.775 - Original Gravity)
ABW = (76.08 * (OG - FG)) / (1.775 - OG)

To Calculate With ABV
Approx. ABW = Alcohol By Volume * 0.795

ABW = ABV * 0.795
