The hydrometer is a valuable tool that measures the weight or gravity of a liquid in relation to the weight of water. Due to the relation of the gravity to water is specified the resulting measure is called specific gravity. Your hydrometer will float higher in a heavy liquid which would be a liquid with sugar in it, and will float lower in a light liquid such as water. When making wine there is no real interest in the specific gravity of your must however it does play a role in knowing how much sugar is dissolved in it since the yeast converts sugar into carbon dioxide and alcohol. If you know how much sugar you started with and ended with you can figure out how much alcohol your wine or mead has before bottling.
