Nelson 10 @ 10 (12.3)

Nelson 10 @ 0 (12.3)

stike was 12L @ 74deg

Mash in @ 68deg for 90min

sparge was 6L @ 78deg

didnt get a preboil OG

OG in the fermenter @ 30deg 1056 about to put in the ferment fridge to get down to temp

I would like to drop the gravity down to about 1048, unfortunately, I only just reloaded this computer so no soft ware to helpwas hoping someone could let me know how much to dilute with .... cheers in advance

Mike

Target SG dilution equation.

C1V1=C2V2

If I finish sparge at 34 litres & get 1.035, how do I use Beer Tools to tell me how much water to add to hit 1.033?

1.035 X 34 = 1.033 x V2 (when you do the maths leave the 1 out of the SG) rearrange the equation.

(0.035 x 34)/.033= V2 = 36.06, you already have 34L so add 2.06L

Remember your IBUs will be lower than calculated because of both the dilution, and the fact that your boil gravity was higher than expected.
