data lost, need help
« on: January 26, 2010, 09:21:23 PM »
So, I had my computer stolen last week out of my apartment (I live in China) and I have a couple of batches almost ready to bottle.  Unfortunately, I can't get a new PC for another couple of weeks.  So, why am I posting this here?  Well, I have lost access to Beersmith!  Can someone look on their Beersmith system and tell me carbonation information for:
Oatmeal Stout

What I need is the amount of WHITE TABLE sugar to add (per 5 gallon) batch for carbonation for each style.  Beersmith gives a range of carbonation levels for each style and the amount needed of CORN sugar, I believe.  This range would work too, although I'll be using the lower end of the range and converting it to White table sugar.  (lower end of the range b/c I live at altitude and it has more apparent carbonation, and white sugar b/c that's what I can get).

Thanks for your help!

These settings are for Corn Sugar not Table sugar.
Oktoberfest/Marzen 2.2-2.8 Volumes is the range. For 2.2 Volumes use 3.73oz at 72F, and for 2.8 Volumes use 5.33oz at 72F
Oatmeal Stout 1.9-2.5 Volumes. For 1.9 Volumes use 2.92oz at 72F, and for 2.5 Volumes use 4.53oz at 72F.

I have heard that you need more table sugar if you use that as a substitute. So if you stay on the high side, you should be fine.

Sorry to hear about your loss! Hope they catch who did this!

Thanks. I'll probably shoot for the middle.
