HOW MUCH ALCOHOL WILL THERE BE?

 What's the ABV%?  How strong is my homebrew? How can I increase the alcohol content of my batch?

These are common questions and the easiest way to answer them is with your triple-scale hydrometer.  From your readings, OG-FG * 131 = ABV.  If you don't like math, check out the chart for an estimated alcohol by volume.
