Software. For a pound of honey in a 5 gallon batch it would add about .005 or so to the gravity.

You did hear that. You also heard "secondary fermentator"

Looks like I can do 70 okay. Thank you for the insight.

Thanks for the replies, folks. I'll look for those numbers when I go for it (maybe this weekend?). Now I just need to figure out how to sweet talk the guys over at 1600 Penn. out of some of that honey...

Cheers!

Cheers
My Austin Homebrew extract kit (w/out added "alcohol booster,") read as follows:
Original SG= 1.057
Final SG= 1.013
Unless my math is wrong, that puts it at 5.76% ABV.

My SG readings were right on with these listed in the directions I received with the kit.
I still have a couple of weeks before I can crack one open, though.

i think you're missing something.. because my plug-in gave me 1.067 as a target SG

I'm waiting for mine to bottle condition... my test bottles (12oz) have all been flat... dead flat. i'm wondering if my corn sugar syrup didnt mix well enough. Fingers crossed that my bombers will be OK, since a majority of the batch is in bombers. I'd hate to have to dump the whole batch. I used WLP002, i doubt I'll be using that again.

Silly me- I actually followed the 'original' recipe and only added 1/2 oz. of fuggles. Now I'm ready to bottle and it tastes like. . . well, not much. Is there any way to add the 1oz of hops that's missing or did I just ruin it?
