Posted in thread: Stir plate - Potentiometer and fan questions... on 04-26-2013 at 03:27 PM
Why the other guy in his article use a 2k then?Because with an LM317 it isn't the value of
either resistor that sets the voltage, it's the ratio between them. I was using a 220 ohm fixed
resistor, so ...

V = IR12 = 0.17*RR = 12/0.17 = 71 ohmThe closest common value would be 100 ohm: 25 ohm would
only allow you to reduce the speed by 25/71 = 35%.

You need to go back to the OP post. He started at 1.052 and has a current brix of 9. The
conversion to SG makes it 1.025.Only if you use an old, inaccurate calculator. ;)

The main thing that I see would throw a wrench in my plan is if the same assumptions that are
used when measuring with a hydrometer (3 part solution of water/sugar/alcohol) no longer hold
true from an...

Incidentally, your examples show a BCF of 1.0059 (pre-boil) and 1.0308 (post-boil). Based on my
experience, this shows a much larger variation than I have ever seen when calculating pre and

Why there is such a difference in the BCF's I don't know.I found this thread by pingback to the
refractometer calculator, so I'm sorry to be so late to the party.I suspect that any variation

If you're fermenting only simple sugars, then you wouldn't need a correction factor, and you'd
want to use an FG correlation intended for wine, not beer.

Granted, they compiled results from several experimenters and different tastersExactly; that's
what makes it a survey. There's a second uncontrolled variable - the equipment/recipe/process.
If I polle...

Do you have a link to that experiment? I don't have a BYO subscription.BYO only puts select
articles online: should be able to find the episode discussing the results in the BBR
archives. It's worth...

There is no magic number, but Wyeast states right on the smack-pack that there is enough yeast
for a wort with 1.06 OG or less.You have to specify: "enough" yeast for what? A few thousand
cells will s...
