    is there a way to test the proof of alcohol? like if you were to make alcohol at home, how could you find out the % of alcohol in it?

    Swim done it this way, put some in a jar, cap it, and swirl it around. If it beads on top good means good proof. Another way is to put some in a spoon, lite it up. If it burns clean, high proof, little blue mid proof. This was years ago now, memory is a little slow. Also seen the swirl done at Jack Daniels distillery on straight whiskey coming off the still.
