Bottled volume vs. Batch volume
« on: November 30, 2009, 04:22:17 AM »
Oftentimes the original batch volume has diminished by .5 gallons or more by the time it comes time to bottle (factoring in losses to kettle to fermentor, primary to secondary, secondary to bottling bucket, etc.).

It would be nice if the carbonation section of the Recipe View had a field for the final volume of beer which it would use for its carbonation values rather than having to change the batch size (which messes up your color/predicted gravities/IBU's etc.)

I second that idea.

I'm putting this into V2.0 - it will have a fermentation volume as well as final bottling volume.

Cheers,
