Well, I've had a few hiccoughs the last few months so this is my first post in quite some time. Let's hope I remember how to post!!!
Firstly cheers to @ShorePoints. He's on to everything, a true favourite of mine.
Secondly, hi there @tizoc. Good questions.
Thirdly, to me. I just had a big operation and have had to take a lot of drugs so read the following at your own risk...
Okay I've read the above posts quickly... contrary to what I've read above, I can advise that the BIABacus handles a myriad of calculations - the "spreadsheet" handles a diabolical amount of scenarios. The only constant we have been unable to write into it is bullshit. For example, if you typed, one plus one will equal three, the BIABacus will throw a return of, "Bullshit."
Now, back to you again @tizoc . [I wasn't joking about the big operation. It's taken me out of the game for the last three months and I'm not sure if I can stay in it for another three months. I also pay the bills for this site - I think it's over $40 per month so bear with me.] What I think you might be trying to do is figuring out my calculations rather than the logic behind them. The BIABacus defaults are derived from formulas/algorithms. Formulas/algorithms come from data which I have asked for and so many fantastic brewers have given me.
I have freely given those averages to some other software companies and some others have pinched them.
But the averages we have been at true pains to collect here and others copy are simply, averages. They pinch the average but they don't pinch the point....
For example, Volume Loss from Lauter is not a mysterious thing. Imagine you have two towels in front of you. One is a face washer and the other is a king size towel. Now squash each of those "towels" between your hands. In fact, wring them in your hands as hard as you can. Which towel ends up drier?
The BIABacus will give you a very good default on things like this but it goes way beyond that. For example, it will throw you some pretty cool warnings that other software simply cannot do if you throw brewing scenarios at it that won't work.
But, the BIABacus is not an app (and can't be an app atm as the maths are far too complicated) and, if something isn't an app then what use could it be???
We better ask Yuval
