Use a hydrometer to see the specific gravity. Hydrometers are calibrated for measuring different things. We have 2 types of hydrometer:
1 - Beer & Wine Hydrometers - For measuring the sugar level in a liquid for fermenting beer, wine, mead or cider.
2 - Spirit Alcohol Hydrometers - For measuring the alcohol by volume in spirits.
You simply place the hydrometer in your liquid at 20°C and read off the scale on the side. You can then use this scale to determine:
- In 1 - Beer & Wine Hydrometers - the amount of sugar in your juice or wort. This will tell you it's potential alcohol content once fermented and if your fermentation is complete.
- In 2 - Spirit Alcohol Hydrometers - the alcohol content of the spirit. This will not show an accurate reading if the spirit has extra sugars added, e.g. a liqueur.
