Ran into a glitch. I calibrated my refractometer in distilled water to read 0. I then noticed my hydrometer reads 0.998 in the same distilled water. Evidently, Brewzor doesn't plan for the hydrometer reading LOW because when I input those two values, it doesn't seem to accept it.I'm using the Brewzor app as well. Have you calibrated the refractometer calc in it? There is an option to calibrate in the drop down menu (in the refractometer calc) where you enter a Hydrometer reading then enter the refractometer reading and it will adjust the correction value accordingly.
I'm seriously thinking about this plan:
1.) Trust my brix scale reading on my calibrated refractometer entirely.
2.) In Brewzor, use the calibrate feature by entering known values from the adjustement tables such as the brewersfriend tool. So if I pick a reading toward the middle say...16 brix...in Brewzor I enter 16 brix and a SG of 1.0654.
Basically then, I end up making the Brewzor app match up with the online calculators and then I throw all my faith into my refractometer's brix reading for unfermented wort. In this event, even with high gravity situations, I should always get a gravity value that matches the adjustment tools while still using one app to do all my calcs.
Sound ok or flawed?
