ABV Determination for Beer with Brew Meister

Within the Brew Meister for EasyDens and SmartRef mobile app you are able to choose three different equations to estimate the alcohol by volume (ABV) of your beer.

ABV determination with °Plato:

  • Hubert Hanghofer Formula
    ABV = ρ * ABW / 0.7894
    Source: Hubert Hanghofer (2010). Gutes Bier selbst brauen (11th ed.). blv. ISBN 978-3-8354-1556-0

    ABW = 81.92 * (OG - FG) / (206.65 - 1.0665 * OG)
    ρ... density [g/m³] (Density measurement undertaken by EasyDens)

ABV determination with Specific Gravity:

  • Standard Formula
    ABV = (OG - FG) * 131 
    Source: (Learn more)

  • Alternate Formula
    ABV = (105 / 0.79) * ((OG - FG) / FG)
    Source: (Learn more)

Please note that Brew Meister for EasyDens and SmartRef app uses your temperature corrected results for SG / °Plato for the selected equation.
