Not at all... it is labelled from 1.04 to 1.00, and you could easily use it down
to 0.99, ie it would work for every kind of beer or wine.
Ah but you were using the 'not for proof alcohol' argument to argue in favour of
it being a lead-acid battery hydrometer, which is what I was disagreeing with.
In fact a healthy discharged lead-acid battery has an SG of 1.12, and charged it
should be 1.265, so this particular hydrometer would bob around like a cork on
the ocean in any liquid that came out of a battery.
