Diluting Alcohol

If distilling alcohol and spirits at home, it’s necessary to dilute your distillate. Measure the alcohol content of the spirit and add the calculated amount of water for best results of home distilling.

Alcohol content:

(ACTUAL) before dilution
(TARGET) after dilution


(ACTUAL) before dilution Liter
(TARGET) after dilution Liter

Calculation example

3.71 litres of alcohol with 58.00 %vol
mixed with
1.29 liters of water
5.00 litres of alcohol with 43.00 %vol
The contraction was not taken into consideration for the calculation.
