Hi,

When you are trying to work out your final gravity, how do you factor in the fermentability of your ingredients?

To work out the OG, I've been using the PPG values from the BYO site, and that's been reasonably accurate. Using the attenuation for the yeast, I should be able to work out what the FG will be. But what if you have some ingredients like maltodextrin or flaxed barley, which are less or not fermentable.

Is there anywhere that lists the ferementability of ingredients?

Thanks,
Wreck.
