Something that graphs both "Gravity" and "ALC %" vs. time would be good.

I graphed SG & ALC % Vs. Time in the below link using excel. Perhaps Jeff and Lathe can incorporate something similar in BTP 1.1.

You folks are the best!

Data on Flaked wheat, Flaked barley, Torrified Wheat required.

Cant find specs for them on weyermann, bairds etc website though.

Thanks!
Include the UNITS "cells/ml/plato" and "Total cells pitched" as options for "Yeast" in the ingredients panel, rather than just mL, Litres etc.

This would allow brewers who yeast count to keep track of the pitch rate.

Cheers.

Some of us do yeast counts with a microscope and hemacytometer and pitch a calculated amount of yeast cells.

Could you add in the UNITS drop down menu, "Yeast Count", for the selected yeast strain.

Cheers.

The Best Co2 Regulator?

I'm looking to purchase a new CO2 regulator for kegging. I've been told that the "Micromatic" regulators are the best on the market. I am new to kegging and would welcome some feedback on what to purchase.

I am curious as to whether isohop extract, like hop pellets, has antibacterial properties in beer? I make 4L yeast starters for 24L batches, but I dont use hop pellets in the starters because I dislike the hop break that i get from using them. I am thinking of using isohop extract as a substitute an...

Mashing Flaked Barley and Flaked oats.

I heard that some flaked grains require boiling to gelatinise the starches before they can be mashed. I am in the process of brewing an oatmeal stout. Does anyone know if flaked barley and flaked oats can be mashed as normal, or if pre-boiling is required? Also, what is the difference between Instan...

Toasting Flaked Oats

I am planning to brew an oatmeal stout and have seen recipes using flaked oats they have toasted in the oven.

What would be the effect on beer aroma/flavour/mouth feel etc. from using toasted flaked oats. And are there any benefits?
