Can someone just reaffirm my math or tell me I am wrong please?
I brewed up a tripel recipe which called for a OG of 1.081. I did not add the cane sugar because I didn't want my yeast to get lazy so i am going to add it tonight the second full day of fermentation.
I had an OG of 1.061 w/o the sugar. I am planning on adding 2.5# of sugar as the recipe calls for.
Am I correct in my math that the sugar will have .115 gravity points (46x2.5), which then 115/5 gallons = .023 thus giving me a true OG of 1.084?
Thanks, I just wanted to make sure I am understanding Palmer's book correctly
