New calculator utility: volume change as a function of temp.

There are several places during a brew day using BTP where I need to know a liquor or wort volume at a different temperature than a step in the software uses. Another calculator utility to convert a volume at temp A to the volume corrected to temp B would be very useful. The coding to do this is alr...

Re: Apple juice as adjunct

I agree with this suggestion. However, adding fermentables after the wort is transferred to the fermenter requires that original gravity be presented differently. Essentially, there are two original gravities when fermentables are added to fermenters. The first is measured after the end of the boil...

Re: Apple juice as adjunct

Using 100% for DBFG and 88.5% for moisture should work. FG-CG should be 0%. Color can be whatever worked before. Protein and nitrogen are irrelevant. Most other values will set themselves being dependent on DBFG, FG-CG and moisture. Jeff, Those number seem tp work OK, and I think I understand it no...

Hi Jeff, The technique for entering apple juice as an extract worked great. Now I'm stuck on a slight twist on this theme. I want to add apple juice again as an adjunct and I'm running into trouble with how to come up with the numbers again. The same apple juice as before, but there are a whole lot ...

Agreed that the apple juice is effectively a weak extract! What I didn't get from either the extract editor interface or the help was the "one pound of juice in one gallon of wort" part. My error I guess was in thinking zero gallons of wort because I wasn't adding any water anywhere else. Now that y...

FYI, if you put the library folder on a thumb drive and map it to the same drive on all your machine. Then simply moving the thumb drive from machine to machine makes for really easy transfering.

How to add apple juice as an ingredient???

I want to add apple juice to my ingredients. I think it fits best as a liquid extract (or maybe an adjuct). I know the juice measures 1.048 for an OG and that filtered apple juice without any remaining pulp can be considered basically a water and sugar mixture. A full jug 1 gallon jug of the juice w...

Ditto.

It's useful to keeping track of and documenting the entire brew day timeline for steeping a late hop addition or whirlpooling.

Bump...

... this one up the list, especially the harder part of implementing % of grist part on recipe entry. Listing the % of grist in the export/print is likely a no brainer.

To resurrect the long quiet topic of hop storage calculations in BTP. Has anything ever been implemented to factor in the values in the hop dialog box, specifically the "Storage" and "Storage factor" fields, to help account for how a hop variety ages and how it's been handled and store
