Thanks to Oskaar, I have that chart posted above my basement Mead shelf, and taped inside my Mead log book, and in a folder at work, and I lost a copy somewhere in the pile of magazines at home. The better half is teasing me that it will be used as my Xmas card that I will be sending out to family. Cheeky woman ;)

It is a great tool and easy to reference quickly.

I used the tables from Ben Rotter as one of the reference tables for doing the Mead Calculator.

I couldn't decide which PA (%ABV) formula to use, so ended up doing a linear solution on the SG data that came with my Hydrometer, and came up with

%ABV = 139.706 * SG - 140.219

Maybe I should have used a non-linear solution ??? Either way, it is just to give an good indication, not to be perfect.
