alcoholic 'proof'
    #4428580 - 07/20/05 03:39 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

this has always confused me when i see it in descriptions, so i googled it - and now i'm even more confused, look:

".... thus the same beverage may be 40 proof (Gay-Lussac), 80 proof (American), or 70 proof (British), depending on where you are drinking it." from  this link

so how does a 37.5%volume bottle of vodke measure up, if i'm looking at an '80%proof' recipe? and what about my 40%vol bottle of rum, my 55%vol bottle of absinthe? i wanna dissolve 100mg of powder in 50ml of spirit, to make a 2mg/ml oral solution.

thanks  :thumbup: :tongue:

"proof" is roughly twice the alcohol content by volume.

So 150 proof is 75% alcohol by volume.

100 proof = 50% alcohol

ect. :wink:

if your dissolving pure chems... 190 proof (95%) grain alcohol is the best... you wouldnt really wanna dissolve it in rum cause it has alot of other stuff in it.... especially if you plan on keeping it for a while

higher proofs evaporate too fast....i like the 40% cause it's a shitton more stable over time.

thats what caps & lids are good for :wink: .... 40% vodka would work fine ... i dunno i just have this hang up about putting relativly sensitve compounds into a non clear liquid like rum/tequila/whiskey
