Starting Gravity Question

Postby Shay » Mon Apr 27, 2009 10:22 pm

Hello,

I entered this http://beerdujour.com/Recipes/ItSmellsLikeCoffee.htm into BTP. The recipe author lists 1.056 as the OG, but BTP is listing it at 1.076. I am not sure what is going here. http://shaylogan.com/images/SmellsLikeCoffe.btp is the recipe file from BTP. Does anyone have any ideas?

TIA,

Shay

I give up trying to make the URL tags work.

Either he had much lower efficiency than he thought, or it has something to do with the water he added at the end.

It appears he had 4.5 gallons at 1.077 in his kettle and his fermentor then he added water, according to his notes. It's possible that he was only able to transfer 4.5 gallons off the break and hops, but really had over 5 gallons in his kettle. Then he appears to have added water to dilute to 1.056.

to get the url tag to work, you need to put url=address in the first set of brackets (then you can put whatever you want between the brackets), not the address between two sets of brackets.

It must be the water addition that I missed in the notes. He lists his brewhouse efficiency at 82%. Jeff, thanks for the heads up on the url tag. I tried every iteration of it I could think of.
