I have been looking online trying to find a gadget to test the alcohol content of my kefir d'Uva (grape juice). Didn't have a lot of luck. There were opinions on using different gadgets in making wine and beer but there's no unison on what to use in kefir drinks.
I have emailed a company and asked about their hydrometer and got a reply saying that I should use an alcometer. I thought an alcometer was a breathalyzer? I also noticed something called a wash (or spirit) hydrometer. I just couldn't quite figure out if it's appropriate to use in kefir.
Anybody has better luck? I hate to have to give up on making kefir juice because my 7-year-old refuses to drink milk kefir and water kefir. With this H1N1 situation I would like to strengthen the little guy's immune as much as I can. I was hoping to add kefir to his diet but the alcohol content seems to do more harm than good.
If anyone knows a way to test the alcohol content please share.
