Feature Request - Plato on the Style tab

Postby Nate-O » Sat Oct 25, 2008 8:47 am

Hey guys, I would love to be able to display the Plato scale on the Style tab and not just SG.

Other than that, keep up the amazing work!

Cheers,

You can find Plato under the 'Analysis' tab

I'm not saying that it wouldn't be convenient to have both SG and Plato listed under the Style tab, but I want to be sure you realize that you can find Plato under the 'Analysis' tab.

Cheers.

Hey Bill,

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I know it displays Plato in Analysis and I like that, but I would love to have that option on the Style tab, as that's where I spend most of my time when I'm building out a recipe.

Cheers,

Nate

how about having plato readings for pre-boil and post boil on the recipe print outs? I am constantly having to hand write them in myself to refer to on brew day.

I second 'Wottaguys' suggestion re printouts

I second 'Wottaguys' suggestion re printouts; I don't use a hydrometer in the early stages (pre-boil and pre- and post-chill before pitching yeast) -- it's easier to cool a couple of drops for my refractometer. In fact, I often don't even bother with the hydrometer until I use my thief to check gravity well into the fermentation.

Cheers.
