Triple Scale Beer & Wine Hydrometer
Measures Specific Gravity, Balling (Brix) and Potential Alcohol
A glass hydrometer is the most efficient way to determine the sugar or potential alcohol content of beer or wine. A hydrometer works by measuring the amount of dissolved solids in a liquid before and after fermentation to determine how much sugar is converted to alcohol.
This particular hydrometer is a triple-scale hydrometer that displays sugar content in the 3 most common ways. The first is the specific gravity scale of .990 - 1.170 which measures sugar solutions as compared to the density of water. This scale is most commonly used by brewers. The second scale is the Balling Scale (also known as Brix) which measures sugar as a percentage of total weight ranging from 0 to 38%. This is most commonly used by wine makers. The third scale reflects the potential alcohol that can be produced based on the sugar content of the liquid which ranges from 0 to 22%. This scale is applicable to both beer and wine making. As a result, this hydrometer is versatile enough to measure any beer, wine or cider that is up to 22% potential alcohol.

How To Use A Hydrometer:
Fill the test tube with enough liquid to float the hydrometer in it before fermentation begins. The reading is the number on the hydrometer that intersects with the surface of the liquid. Record this reading as your Original Gravity (a.k.a. O.G., Starting Gravity). This measurement also indicates the potential alcohol if all of the sugar is fermented.
After fermentation is complete, measure another sample of the liquid to determine the Final Gravity (a.k.a.: F.G., Terminal Gravity). The difference displayed is the amount of sugar that has been converted to alcohol. To determine the actual alcohol content, subtract the percentage of potential alcohol that you recorded from the Starting Gravity from the percentage of potential alcohol that you recorded from the Final Gravity.
Conversion Chart Included!
Included with the hydrometer is a helpful reference for the following conversions:
- O.G. to °Plato
- O.G. to Potential Alcohol
- Grams to Ounces
- Liters to Gallons
- Alcohol by volume to alcohol by weight
Just because a hydrometer indicates that there is potential to achieve 22% alcohol doesn’t necessarily mean that the yeast or other factors will allow it. A skilled brewer or wine maker must know their ingredients and how they will work together.
