Alcohol By Volume (ABV) Calculator estimates your initial and final gravity readings, and supports both Plato and SG reports for Apparent Attenuation, and Calories. When using a hydrometer, you’re measuring the specific gravity (SG) of your beers density as is relative to water. Because alcohol is less dense than water, by measuring the difference in your beers density before it begins fermentation, and creates the less dense alcohol, you can then measure the alcohol change-by-volume.
