Default 1 lb Grain = .75 lb LME = .6 lb DME Formula

Here's something new for your brewing pin up board/library.

I've been using the formula 1 lb grain = .75 LME = .6 DME for years then it dawned on me...what exactly is .6 of a pound???

Looking through my extensive brewing library (40+ books) I found a chart in "Brew Classic European Beers at Home", page 183 with the answer:

Decimal fractions of a pound to ounces:

lb = oz
.10 = 1.6
.15 = 2.4
.20 = 3.2
.25 = 4.0
.30 = 4.8
.35 = 5.6
.40 = 6.4
.45 = 7.2
.50 = 8.0
.55 = 8.8
.60 = 9.6
.65 = 10.4
.70 = 11.2
.75 = 12.0
.80 = 12.8
.85 = 13.6
.90 = 14.4
.95 = 15.2

I put this info into a table (in MS Word) with other calculations.

You can calculate it easily by using oz = 16 * lb to get the conversion for any amount...

This is true, but some people like looking at charts and not do the calculations themselves so this is for them...

I have other charts that I review while brewing. There's no use redoing the calculations every time you brew...the numbers don't change.

Charts are nice to have handy. My computer is in the gameroom while my equipment is in the brewing kitchen area of my basement (adjacent to gameroom).

I have a laptop (wirelss) that can be used in the kitchen, but i am always worried I will knock it off the counter, or spill something onto it. So charts are handy to have around.

Salute!
