Comments below based on "Maxi-BIAB Calculator Jul06(sg).xls" When I load this version (and the previous macro-enabled one) I get a pop-up with a warning about macros: This workbook contains links to other data sources. If you update the links, Excel will attempt to retrieve the latest data. If you d...

The calculations for "Maxi-BIAB Calculator Jul05c.xls" all come out the same as for "Maxi-BIAB Calculator Jul04b - Macros.xls" for me with English (US) units. The numbers also looked in the right ballpark when I clicked on Metric, but I did not examine each number in detail. For "Maxi-BIAB Calculato...

Stux, I did my usual comparison of the latest version (Maxi-BIAB Calculator Jul04b - Macros.xls) to my older version and everything seems to be fine in English (US) units. (I guess I'd be happy with "English (US)" or "US" and "Imperial (UK)" or "UK". I really appreciate that you are willing to do th...

stux, Thank you for the birthday present! You have worked long and hard on this project. Your efforts are very much appreciated. No doubt about it. I will have a toast to you at my 4th of July party later today! Thanks again for the time and effort. Of course Pat is a tough work master! It is my bi...

Pat, I changed the hop trub percentage so that the calculator will match some guides that have already been written up so and this is what is resulting in most of the changes you noticed - the whole brew has become bigger. No. As I mentioned, I reset the trub percentage to the old value so I could c...

OK, I looked at the newest version. Unfortunately, several things broke with the latest update: The following comments are from using the "Jul02 - Pat Changes" spreadsheet in US Imperial mode and comparing it to the ""Jul01 - Pat Changes" version. Volumes Default quantity for "Kettle Trub Percentage...

I'm glad that I've been helpful. I'll have time to look at the spreadsheet later this weekend, but for now... I'm in the US and am used to referring to "metric", "English", and "Imperial" measurements However, if you want to be clearer, I'd suggest: Metric English (US) Imperial (UK) I think that "En...

I've been downloading each update and plugging in the recipe that I've been playing around with to convert to mini-BIAB, just to compare the successive versions. This new calculator is looking good! If you guys don't mind a few comments from the peanut gallery... The easiest thing to miss is that I ...

BrickBrewHaus and joshua, thanks for the pointer to Brewmaster's Warehouse. I dialed up my grain bill just to see how it would come out and I can get the quantities I need at a lower price, even with shipping. I'll use the local guy when I can (liquid yeast, beer brewing supplies where the quantitie...

Hold off on modifying The Calculator 2.0. stux has just posted another update here which I am going to explore now. Bear in mind, his update will include a lot of tabs that won't be included in The Calculator 2.? Thanks for the heads-up. I looked at stux's latest and it is much better than what I d...

Leftover Grains

So, I am looking at a recipe conversion for a mini-BIAB (2.5 gal, i.e. a half batch) and I am realizing that one problem is that at my LHBS, most grains are sold in 1 lb (16 oz) increments. A couple of the specialty grains are sold in 0.5 lb (8 oz) increments and a few of the major grains are sold l...

Thanks and yes, it makes sense. I don't have the time to compare the recipes in detail tonight, though.

I modified the previous Calculator to do conversions to English from metric. If The Calculator 2.0 that you used is stable, I can do that again. Let me know.

PistolPatch, I actually like the time zone difference because I don't have to stay right on top of the thread. I should have searched on $E$8 on the hop bill sheet of the Excel workbook, I had used E8. Now I see the formulas that use it. The longer mash makes sense for better extraction. It sounds l...

I read the suggested thread (at least the first few pages) and I think I am doing the right thing. Although I'd like to have this recipe converted, the bigger thing is that I want to learn to do it the right way so I can do the conversions on my own. I thought that the Original Recipe End of Boil Vo...
