Alcohol and Gravity Calculator

If you would like to build your own recipes, we have created this handy gravity and ABV calculator.  Simply enter your quantity of liquid or dry extract, and additional sugars, and your brew size in litres, and this will will estimate your original gravity (OG), final gravity (FG) and ABV%, or alcohol percentage.  Whilst we specify Brick Road for the best possible beer kit experience, other brands can be substituted in the calculator.


Mexican Cervesa (Corona style)
Drink this light, refreshing lager with a wedge of lime, and service ice cold. Brick Road Gold Lager malt is already hopped to the perfect level for your Mexican Cervesa. Use the yeast under the lid, or if you can control the fermentation temperature at 12-15 degrees, you can add an extra packet of Lager yeast. Simply mix with 1kg of Brick Road Extra Light DME, add 15g of Citra hops and top up to 19L with quality brewing water for approx. 4.8% ABV. Super refreshing!
