I was curious to know if there are any online resources for formulas used in homebrewing. Such as, Estimating OG/FG from recipes, ABV percentages, etc... I know there are tons of free calculatorslike Beertools, Beersmith, Promash, etc... However, what if one was interested in making these calculations by hand? I have googled and found some info on particular formulas, but no real resource citing all of the most common brewing formulas. It might be good for the Wiki :eek:

Very cool link, this thread is really interesting, and the websites look great.

I may get a printout of this poster someday. Legality wise I probably can't but since I can't buy it anywhere anymore that's the only way I can figure out how to get one.
