There are calculations to convert refractometer readings for final gravity, but you need to know the OG to do it.
okay, i wasn't aware of that. i believe the OG was (without looking back at my notes) 1.062. man, that would be awesome if that's all my problem is. do i need to check it with my hydrometer instead of refractometer, or is it easier to just do the math?
as far as the temp surge, power never got cut off according to my wife. i'm really hoping that Walker has solved my problem.
