Ok I have some apple cider that is a little shy on Alcohol. Just wanted to raise the ABV by 2%. How to figure that out?
Well like most things I fed my question to DuckDuckGo search engine and found the following site. The only numbers you need to feed it are:
1) Gallons of existing wine
2) ABV of "Spirits" that you are using to fortify
3) Current ABV of the wine
4) Percent of increase desired

When you enter the last field it auto-calculates the gallons required to fortify to that target ABV. Then - for me I had to figure out how many oz that translates to - still pretty simple.

Here's the web site: Winemaking Calculations
