no need to be an ahole. Unless im mistaken your looking at upwards of 80 according to promash. Seriously though get a trial of either promash or beersmith. They are indispensable...hes right

I'm getting about 88% running the number quickly. This chart may help you out:

This ain't the way to go to get questions answered. Not anywhere!

ADHD? Sounds more like tourettes syndrome

And FWIW, I like running some numbers myself, maybe its the engineer in me but blindly plugging in stuff in a calculator doesn't always do it for me. I do use some basic calculators found here:

Thanks alot...I may avg 87% on on back to back AG batches...
But I really have no idea what's going on with most of this stuff... yet!!!
It takes me alot of repeating for things to bust into my long term memory...Then I remember them forever...
Why would a person take the time to explain...FO...I'm busy...Figure it out yourself...
Sounds like there are a few people here who I would not care to share a brew with...
Call yourself any name you are comfortable with...I'm moving on...

If you have not met a 'beer fag'...Stop by a HBS..
One will be along in a few minutes...

I assume it is like a bus...There is a wierdo on every bus...

If you can't find them...It's you...
