    Found this online.

    I found the discrepancy. There are 3 ways to convert from brix to SG. There's the Kaminski BYO
    conversion, the Bruce's Blog conversion, and "multiply by 4". Refractometers use the Kaminski
    conversion ...

    That's the direction I'm heading. I was surprised to see that the scales didn't match up on my

    it'll get dow...

    I might have just answered my own questions. I currently have 4.1% abv. Give it a swirl and
    wait a week, I might get to 1.011 or so which would give me 4.5%. I know, I know, brewing takes
    patience.

    Hey folks. I just brewed (BIAB ) an Irish Red Ale (NB AG recipe, but not the kit), OG = 1.045.
    I hydrated the Nottingham dry yeast in 1 cup of DME wort at 70, and it was foaming up nice
    before the bo...
