Similar in use to a brewing hydrometer, but measures in a different range(0-100% alcohol and 0-200 proof). The use of an alcoholmeter is very straightforward. Pour a sample of the spirit to be tested into a tall glass or highchemical tolerant plastic cylinder, leaving enough space for the alcoholmeterto disperse the liquid. In order to obtain the most accurate reading possible,try to ensure that the liquid is as close to 68 degree F (20’C) as possible,as this is the temperature that the alcoholmeter has been calibrated to(should your alcoholmeter be calibrated to a different temperature, whichshould be stated on the meter, ensure that your liquid is at the quotedtemperature). Place your alcoholmeter in the sample and spin it do dislodgeany bubbles that may have been in the liquid, and could potentially cause thealcoholmeter to float slightly higher, resulting in a low reading. Read themark where the liquid level crosses the stem of the alcoholmeter. This is yourpercentage alcohol by volume.
