In Topic: Kit And Extract Beer Spreadsheet

17 February 2017 - 08:37 PM

Hi All,


Love using the spreadsheet and getting precise numbers on my brews.


I have been brewing a few of those Mangrove Jack's Craft pouches... I was wondering if there would be an update on the spreadsheet to include them?

You put finings into the keg or when cold-crashing?  I would've thought most of the particles would drop out of suspension when cold-crashing (that's all I typically do).

I re-hydrate the finings and add to the keg... Always has worked a treat for me!
