How does one find the ABV of a finished sugar wash, when both the brix and hydrometer both read 0

(Ending SG - Starting SG) * 131.25

Example

(1.010-1.083) * 131.25 = 9.58%

If the Brix is being read with a refractometer then a zero reading means there is no alcohol or sugar in the sample, only water.

The hydrometer reading of zero is also confusing. An alcohol hydrometer in water at standard temperature will read zero if there is no alcohol or sugar present.

Maybe you mean an SG hydrometer and you actually mean a reading of  1.000

More information required please.
