I'll be in Germany at the end of November for a mates wedding and was thinking of taking a train to Brussels and spending a day or two there doing a bit of beer tourism before heading back home.
Anyone been there before? Anyone got friends there who also like beer and like showing...
Haha, dont worry about the “messy wires” - you should see mine!
Twice as much wiring (had to split it between to 10A circuits) in a box only half the size, i had no idea what i was doing and learned it all as i went along.
Looks good to me! [emoji41]
Yeah youre right.. it makes no sense
Though I seem to remember reading something about volume measurements and the invention of the 'litre" as a unit (or was it mass and kilogram....) anyway, the point was that the origins were just as obscure and subjective - if not more so - than the imperial...
I just edited my post before I realised that you'd replied.
If you change the DME "contribution factor" to 42.2ppg, you end up with the same figure you came to in your post above (568gms DME- or 567.9gm to be precise)
but yeah - imperial does kinda suck, but in some ways it does make sense.
I was pretty close though! only 10.7gms off!
Do those figures you've got there come from using the bog standard 43 ppg contribution factor for DME though?
If you change the contribution factor to 42.2ppg, you get 567.9 gram DME
(for some reason I found it way easier to have all the back-end...
I havent looked at brewman (didnt know it existed until just now!)
but when i first started using brew software i found brewersfriend to be of the easiest to use.
Beersmith was (and still is in some ways) too overly complex imo. I also found the UI to be really.... i dunno.... “jarring”? Perhaps...
Cheers mark - yeah I just pulled the figures to convert between DME, DEX and sugar straight out of the priming calc on Brewers Friend - I actually didnt give them much thought.
I'll have a read and revise
Dunno if this is the right place to post this...
Anyway, I fell short of my target gravity on a brew day recently and thought there'd be a simple way to work out how much DME to add to correct it.
Lots of googling brought up a lot of discussion threads in various forums and articles...
So I made a really simple spreadsheet that works as a calculator for working out gravity corrections in post-boil wort with DME/DEX/Sugar additions.
I was hoping I could upload it somehow to share with other members. Is there a way to do that within the AHB site?
Thanks in advance!
By throttle back I actually mean (conversely) opening the valve on the pump outlet so that the flow increases, but the ramping slows down...
But yeah, definitely gonna check the water temp in the HEX during a ramp step next brew day
