    Great piece of brewing software. It has been extremely helpful as I take the first steps into
    recepie design.Would you please consider adding a an export option to be "printer friendly text

    Do not recommend! It looks like an identical product to

    VFO is our post boil volume. ;)From what I recall, VFO is the still hot volume, and VIF is the
    chilled volume - kettle losses right? If so that's what I was using, the chilled volume.

    Curious as to how you are determining the starting water volume (the full amount) as in a full
    volume mash.What are your fixed values for these -Boil time ?Evaporation Rate ?Grain Absorption
    ?Edit:. D...

  • Posted in thread: What's Your Typical Conversion Efficiency? on 11-03-2016 at 03:45 AM
    It appears the Brew Session tool conversion efficiency calculator does not make a correction
    for grain moisture content (typically about 4%.) Brew on :mug:Yup I came to the same conclusion
    a bit ago a...

    Actually, BrewersFriend uses the "correct" definition of "Conversion Efficiency""Conversion
    efficiency has been introduced to asses the performance of mash conversion before lauter losses
    take effect....

  • Posted in thread: What's Your Typical Conversion Efficiency? on 10-30-2016 at 03:26 PM
    Usually I'm in the range of 93-96% for a typical 1.060, brew depending on the grains used, the
    mash volume, mash temp, and the crush. I think a lot of people are confusing mash efficiency
    with convers...

    But, I can still laugh about my braggot that scored 46 in the mazer cup and didn't make
    mini-bos. :)Yeah that's a tough one. I was at a different comp last year where a 43 lost to a
    36. The 36 was sco...

    As someone new to organizing a comp, and seeing it first hand for the first time...Judges score
    differently. Some are more lenient than others, some are very sensitive/offended by certain off
    flavors....

  • Posted in thread: BIAB Mashing Out on 10-25-2016 at 03:59 AM
    This might upset some people but a mashouts a purpose is NOT to increase efficiency, nor is it
    to significantly change the viscosity and make rinsing the sugars more effective… A
    mashout denatur...

Wasn't sure where to post this - maybe this will do the trick. New brewer here with a few successful extract batches to my credit. Planning on my first BIAG session this weekend and wanted to thank you for your kick ass calculator! I played around with others out there, but none made as much intuitive sense as the Priceless one has. I am really hoping to use the heck out of it in the coming year as I refine my process.

Once again, sincere thanks for your efforts!
