Default Is this Correct ?!

Hi there !

I'm going to brew a One-Gallon-Batch with DME .

I calculated the amount of Malt needed for this Batch and

I'd like to know if I'm doing RIGHT .

p.p.g. of the Malt = 40

O.G. = 1.050

Evaporation Rate = 0.3 Gallon / Hour

Total Points = 50 X 1 = 50

The amount of Malt = 50 / 40 = 1.25 pounds

As I start with 1.3 Gallons of water , therefore

50 / 1.3 = 38.5

So , the Gravity would be 1.038 at the beginning and after 1 Hour boiling , I'll have

One Gallon Wort which has the Gravity 1.050 .

Is that all Correct ?!

Hector
