and who told their math teachers they would never use algebra outside of school? besides the fact that every time you count money, you're using algebra
Right?! Math is for dummies! I'm just going to party my way through school...haha. Anyway, my number was 38.5 IBU (or so) for my math, but that was going off the high side of the anticipated OG for the Imperial. Either way, it looks like I calc'd it all in correctly (or close enough)...
Sounds like I learned something new today - BU/GU (or whatever) Ratio - and guess what, I cheated by getting on here. But don't tell the judges.
Thanks guys. I think I have what I need. Time to go get after this beast.
Oh - and for the JR's out there - go do it the old fashioned way once or twice. Guarantee you will learn something new & your brew will show for it. Remember, the Egyptian Pyramids weren't built by lazy people. They did it themselves - THE 'OLD FASHIONED' WAY....
