Mash Scedule/Final Gravity

Postby Legman » Sun Jun 08, 2008 5:11 pm

When adjusting the mash temperatures the final gravity does not change in the calculations. It doesn't seem to matter if I put it 140F or 160F, it never changes. Obviously this would effect the FG.

Am I missing something here?

BTP does not predict the effects mash temperature has on FG. This is left up to the user's experience and past results to determine. Other factors that have some effect on FG include yeast strain, grains and extracts used, mash pH, etc. To change FG, edit your apparent attenuation found in the main window below the efficiency and evaporation rate fields.

Hmmm. Ok, thanks.
I was kinda hoping that the scheduling would help predict that to some degree. :(
