Just looking at recipes worked out with brewmate and some come up with a line like such :-

Original Gravity (OG): 1.039 (°P): 9.8......... What does the (°P): 9.8 part of the line mean??/

A chap named Fritz Plato decided that if you have a solution with 10% sugar by weight then it will be called 10 degrees Plato.

He also coined the term "on the fritz" when he stuck his willy in the brown pump and blew the brewery's fuse.

No, it is a regular unit of measurement at (probably most) breweries. Your attitude serves to portray you in nought but the most luminous light my friend.

I thought that was coined at the Maytag washing machine factory when a washer acted as though under the influence of alcohol, much like patrons of the other family business.

If you are interested in Czech Beers they are usually described on the Plato scale - I think 12 means full strength.
