Beer Analysis

Ethanol is the major alcohol in wine, with very small quantities of higher alcohols (fusel alcohols) such as methanol, propanol, butanol, and glycerol to name a few. Normal alcohol levels in wine vary from 7% upward to 24% in desert wines. In the United States, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) regulates alcoholic beverages, and taxes the wine according to the alcohol content.
