I don't think so. FG by itself doesn't tell much about sweeterness. FG info combined to mash temperatures info on the other hand can give us much clearer clue about "sweeteness level", but still an oriented guess. Ph, mash thickness, water and mash temperature also influence it. In general, higher mash temperatures will produce dextrinous (heavy-bodied ...
When you are measuring the specific gravity, you want to know the weight of a specific volume of liquid. This being said, the refractometer is not strictly speaking a tool to measure the specific gravity. It does measure the refractive index of the liquid. Assuming that you deal with water plus sugar, you can calculate the quantity of sugar from the ...
