Helpful Tips and Info
Original Gravity is 1.070 and Final Gravity is 1.010, you subtract 1.070 – 1.010 = 0.06, then multiply that by 131.25 and your ABV is 7.875%
Note: Make sure your hydrometer water is room temperature for your readings and that you measure from the low point on the liquid and not the lifted part against the hydrometer.
Grain bill is 12 lbs, multiply that by 1.5 = 18, then divide that by 4 and you’ll need 4.5 gallons of water for your mash
Note: This calculation is for my setup and batch sparging. The actual amount you multiply by your grain bill can be anywhere between 1.25 and 1.50 (I use 1.50).
