Yes, having to clean up multiple threads and posts spamming a site from multiple alt id's ticks me off, too. Move along.

geobotsar, your project is a very worthy effort and is coming along VERY nicely. I've already replaced my usual speed dial with yours because yours accomplishes so much more. I commend you for your effort and will continue to follow your development. You may have made some unusual choices to get here but you're human, and everyone makes mistakes - no need to be publicly flogged for it.

My recommendation to you would be to be careful with your usage of branded materials. The Wyeast tube, the Coopers LME can, and even the name 'Yeastcalc'. Don't use other companies images, likenesses, photos without prior permission. This is as much for them as it is for you and me. I personally wouldn't want my business name being plastered on another website unless there is a connection or permission has been obtained. I also know that Wyeast wouldn't give you the permission to use their image on your website so it doesn't bode well for me when I see it there. The same can be said for the use of the term 'Yeastcalc' which is why folks here took such objection when you created a user account named 'yeastcalc' - and even about the fact that you created a website basically named the same (yeastcalc.co). The true original and only 'yeastcalc' is Dustin Sullivan; anyone else trying to use the moniker is simply plagiarizing his name and confusing matters. I don't believe this is your intention. I believe you are trying to fill a void and give back to the brewing community, and using name recognition works fairly quickly. Afterall, TallDan put up some YeastCalc placeholder websites too and those were posted (spammed) in several threads on yeast so folks could easily find them. At this point, your tools go way beyond a simple yeast propagation calculators and while the name 'YeastCalc' is familiar, I believe you would find a better following under a new original name. Just my opinion of course.

Keep up the good work. It's shaping up nicely.

apologies if this has already been asked:

on the pitching calculator, why do you offer of the option of specifying "Gravity of Starter", if it doesn't make a difference?

changing the default 1.037 to 1.010 or 1.099 doesn't influence the number of resulting (grown) cell. i would get rid of that field.

also, on the Priming Sugar calculator there is a typo: "Mapple Syrup" (should be "Maple")

Thanks for your comments stpug, they are appreciated and noted. Ill be sure to change the images very soon, and maybe the domain name in the near future.you are correct, the website started as i placeholder for the flash cslculator and transformed to something else, maybe something that would be better with another name. sweetcell the gravity makes a difference on the braikaiser's formulas.thanks for the typo correction.

I was wrong...

There were two episodes. One was yeast washing and the other was repitching yeast. They stated that not rinsing the yeast caused a drastic reduction in viability. The reasons they gave were

1) the trub contains some food for the yeast. If there is a small bit of food they will not go dormant and continue to use up their reserves.

2) boiled water is low in o2. Using boiled water and being careful not to reintroduce o2 into it while rinsing will aid in putting them to 'sleep'. If they have o2 they will, once again, continue to use up their reserves.

Very interesting, and this corresponds with my experience with cleaning out really old yeast. The yeast stored under beer was in much worse condition than the yeast stored under boiled water. For short term, I still prefer beer but for long term I think I'll go back to sterile water.

Bump...

I purchased the Mr malty app for android. I figured that even if I didn't like it jz deserved my money for all the great info I've received via brew strong and can you Brew it.

The app was so bad it was insulting. I expected that it would be a mobile version of the Mr malty pitching calculators. There was almost nothing there! It was $5 for the lightest app I've ever bought. And the text ran off the screen. I had to rotate my phone to read all the text, but when I did I scrolled up to find i could no longer view the top of the page and needed to tip my screen again! F-ing garbage!

Anyway, it made me think of this thread and how much I appreciate having a mobile friendly calculator that works (brewers friend doesn't calculate properly unless you use inputs within a narrow range of what they expect, and returns false results rather than an error if you do so
