Input the original gravity and the final gravity to determine the amount of alcohol present in your beer.
Enter the specific gravity reading from your hydrometer and the temperature of your sample to get the corrected specific gravity.
Yeast Pitching Rates
Enter the volume of beer to be fermented and the original gravity to determine how much yeast you need for a proper pitching rate.
If the calculated starter volume is too high, you can increase the number yeast packs used to begin the starter to decrease the amount of starter needed.
Note: The number of liquid yeast packs are based on the availble vials from White Labs or the Wyeast Activator packs which contain approximately 100 million
cells per pack.
Enter the specific gravity of your wort before boiling, the volume of beer at the beginning of the boil, your evaporation rate and the length of the
boil to determine your final volume and final, post-boil gravity.
Enter the amount of grain, your desired water to grain ratio, the current temperature of your grain, and your desired strike temperature.
The result will tell you how much water you need and what temperature it should be at in order to achieve your desired strike temperature. Your mash tun should be pre-warmed using
very hot water to avoid heat loss during the first few minutes of the mash.
