View Full Version : Conversion question

11-16-2004, 12:57 AM
I'm not sure exactly where on the forum this should go, but troubleshooting seems like the most technical area, so here goes.

I'm not sure how cumbersome it will be, but I was looking to find an equation for converting specific gravity to potential alcohol (or vice versa). I'm playing with an Access database (that I'll be happy to share if/when it's done) for keeping track of my meads and was looking at adding a function to automatically calculate theoretical abv/potential alcohol/OG/FG/etc... based on ingredients. Any thoughts? Is it basically (in the range we'd be interested in) a linear function?

Here's some information that will be helpful.

I just use a spreadsheet so I can plug in numbers and arrays.
