  1. Default Correct ABV with fruit in secondary?

    How would you get an accurate ABV reading if you add fruit to your secondary before the fermentation is over?

    Default

    Fruit is about 80% water and usually around 1030-104 in gravity. So you will actually be diluting things. This will lower your gravity and ABV

    Usually secondary is considered post stabilization and during active fermentation.
