was all blank when I looked at it, must still be working on it
Yes, only just added it over the last hour. I put the recipe together using IanP's spreadsheet, and the abv comes out significantly higher at around 5.2%. Figured it must be an efficiency calculation issue, so changed it to 100% to see what happened. Still a fair way off, so not sure which is right, the spreadsheet or the recipedb. Thinking the former?

Not sure how it works it out, my formula is OG-FG divided by 7.46, then add .4ish for bottle conditioning. Given this db entry is 1049/1016, that should be 33/7.46 = 4.42% at the very least, so not sure where it gets 4.27% from.
