The reason the Kaiser established the Plato Kommission is because the Brix scale was known to
be innacurate in the 4th decimal place and beyond. Plato did exactly what Brix did, i.e.
measure the speci...

1000g/342g/mol = 2.92 mol.I think you have missed the point. It is not a question as to what
any particular sugar concentration calculates out to but rather as to how to interpret that. I
am not refer...

I left a whole lot of important stuff out last night and have gone back and edited it in.
Perhaps the most important thing, important enough to justify a separate post, is that you
can't compute the m...

Degrees Plato is the strength of a sucrose solution of the same specific gravity as the
wort/beer by weight in percent. Thus a 10 °P wort has the same specific gravity (1.0403) as a
sucrose solution o...

No, you will be lowering it. This is not a bad thing.

This is another proposed sticky intended to relieve my typing burden as it is something that is
mentioned quite a lot. The intent is not to convince you that you should or shouldn't rely on

Your sulfate to chloride ratio is 1.77 to 1 , I would bump it up a little to 2:1 or 2.5:1 to
accent bitterness. The higher end will will also make the beer drier if you like that.

I guess I'd be reluctant to put a $2.50 temperature sensor in my system simply on the basis of
"The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten."
but an even ...

This Jim S guy doesn't seem to be much of an expert. His taste test (non-scientific note
taking) and recommendation to not bother filtering your tap water hints that he's stuck in the
weeds, missing t...

You have the opportunity to learn two things here.The first is that personal taste is a bigger
factor than most people think even though that should be obvious. You don't like minerally
beer. Don't us...
