What is the original gravity?

The original gravity is the amount of sucrose in a solution before fermentation.

Why is my OG so high?

Some of the most common causes are incorrect calibration of your hydrometer, evaporation during the boil, or adding too much extract to the kettle. If you are consistently getting high OG readings, you may want to check your brewing process and make some adjustments.

Is specific gravity the same as original gravity?

No, original gravity is a measure of the density of the wort before fermentation, while specific gravity is a measure of the density of the wort after fermentation.

Why is gravity called specific gravity?

Gravity is called “specific” gravity because it is a measure of the density of a material as compared with the density of a standard material.

What is specific gravity defined as?

Specific gravity is defined as the ratio of the density of a substance to the density of a reference substance.

What beer gets you drunk fastest?

What does OG mean on beer?

Original gravity

Original gravity is a measure of the sugar content in wort before fermentation.

Which beers have highest alcohol content?

The beers with the highest alcohol content are often called “alcoholic beers” or “strong beers.” These beers can have up to twice the alcohol content of regular beers.

How long does a high gravity beer take to ferment?
