ABV vs ABW
« on: October 29, 2004, 10:34:08 AM »
Is there a means to ACCURATELY calculate  ABW?  I read somewhere it is about 20% less than ABV.  Is this an option available in 1.3? I really need the exact formula.

Thanks.

Dave,
 Its in the "Alcohol - Attenuation" tool.  You just need your starting and final gravity to calculate it.

 Click on "Alcohol and attenuation" on the "Tools" menu or use the shortcut pane.

Cheers!
