How do we tell the alc% of cider.
My son made some cider with apple juice and yeast + a little sugar.
How can we tell the % ??
Thanks

Drink 10 then go for a drive until you find an RBT station.

If you took an original hydrometer reading for Original Gravity, then take a reading for the Final Gravity, then for a typical example:

OG = 1.045
FG = 1.008

The equation would look like this:

((1.05 x (1.045 – 1.008))/1.008) / 0.79 = 0.487

So, this brew would be about 4.9% alcohol.

If you didn't take an original reading then drink five pints and apply the following scale:

Weak: Wow that's tasty
Medium: Didn't realise how spunky next doors' Mrs actually is.
Strong: Waaahhh, why did Princess Diana have to die so young and leave us to grieve forever .... waaaahhhhh


edit: Glen's formula is less stuffing around

Or, if you didn't record OG, just buy the same apple juice again and measure.
