Brewsheet - Volume/Gravity checks
« on: January 09, 2010, 10:28:41 PM »
Something I have thought would be good for a while now is on the Brewsheet in the Boil Wort section is to have a 1/2 time, and possibly 1/4 time, volume and gravity checks.

So at half time through the boil on the brewsheet it will tell me I should be at such a volume (with expansion factor) and such a gravity so I can check it. At the moment I have to work this out manually. And then again at 1/4 time remaining.

It's just a small thing, but would be useful. Cheers.

I put this line in my custom report.  It's not exactly what you wanted, but it's enough for me to see if I'm on my way.  Generally, if I'm off the pre-boil, I'm off the same amount at the end, and progress is usually linear.  I decide along the way whether to boil longer or add DME or sugar to reach the target OG, depending on the gap.
