Just curious as I was reading liver damage was caused by long term heavy drinking which was over 80 grams per day.   I have no idea how much that is.  

I somehow dont think I can get away with drinking an entire bottle every day for the next 10 years but ......  

I figure it's say 12.5% alcohol and 750ml bottle but that's as far as I can go.

87 grams

sort of weird that it is measured in grams instead of ml, but anyway 1ml of water weighs 1 gram. So that bottle of wine would be 93.75 grams of alcohol.  That would be a little much per day.

Somehow I knew someone would come up with an 87.

grams are an odd unit for alcohol

ABV * Vol = Total alcohol content
12.5% * 750 ml = 93.75 ml alcohol

Total alcohol * Specific Gravity (mass) = Total alcohol content in mass
93.5 ml * .789 = 73.96 grams

73.96 grams of alcohol per bottle of wine. So...bottoms up.

148 grams.


Damn, I'm a dead man.  

I've got this thing for Pinot Noir  

I think I'll choose to believe the 87 answer now

Sorry I fucked up the calculation. Edited it...should be right now.

Gram is a measure of mass 80 Grams is equivalent to 2.821888 Oz.avdp.
12.5% ABV of a 750Ml bottle is 93.75ml of alcohol.
93.75ml = 3.170065 Oz.

So by my calculations one 750mL bottle of wine with a 12.5% ABV = ~ 3.2oz of alcohol, if they say 2.82 is bad then you are there....

I'm sure some math genius will explain the error of my math....

The specific gravity (mass) of alcohol is different than water.

It depends entirely upon the specific wine.

1 gallon of ethanol weighs 6.584 lbs. Compare that with the weight of 1 gallon of water: 8.3454 lbs ...

Yup.
After further research - I screwed up my math.....

Based on some wine sites I reviewed I came up with numbers much closer to yours ~ 69.56g/750mL bottle.

Grams in the wrong unit here. You need milliliters.

Fuck it. Where is the bottle. I'll test it out.
