Evening all, as my brother is a hipster he has started making his own Kombucha instead of brewing beer. We were chatting about the potential for alcohol to be present in the homemade stuff. Does anyone know of a way to test homemade kombucha for alcohol content?

I may be wrong, but as Kombucha is made in a similar way to beer (but with a much smaller alcohol content) I can see no significant reason why the ABV Calculator above shouldn't indicate the ABV content of Kambucha by comparing the Original and Final Specific Gravities.

That was my hunch too but wanted to double check with folk on here. Thanks
