    Well, lets see…

    A 5th is 750ml = approx. 25.361fl oz.

    .6 Fluid Ounces (14 grams) Pure Alcohol = 1 U.S. Standard Drink:
    • 12 Fl. Oz. 5% Beer (.05)
    • 5 Fl. Oz. 12% Wine (.12)
    • 1.5 Fl. Oz. 40% (80-Proof) Distilled Spirits (.4)
    Examples:
    • Beer: 12 * .05 = .6 Fl. Oz. Pure Alcohol
    • Wine: 5 * .12 = .6 Fl. Oz. Pure Alcohol
    • Distilled Spirits: 1.5 * .4 = .6 Fl. Oz. Pure Alcohol
    __________________________________________________ _____________

    So…

    At 80 proof a 5th has approx. 16.907333333333333333333333333333 drinks.
    (25.361*.4 / .6)
    ___
    At 90 proof a 5th has approx. 19.02075 drinks.
    (25.361*.45 / .6)
    ___
    At 100 proof a 5th has approx. 21.134166666666666666666666666667 drinks.
    (25.361*.5 / .6)
    ___
    At 110 proof a 5th has approx. 23.247583333333333333333333333333 drinks.
    (25.361*.55 / .6)



    Example: If someone is drinking a 5th of KC100 every 4 days…that’s approx. 5.283541666666666666666666666667 U.S. standard drinks a day.
