Mash Efficiency Calculations
- Hi from Edinburgh,
Well, here's my first contribution to the group. In response to
Brian @... recently asking about a method of calculating mash
extraction efficiency using metric quantities I tidied up the Excel
spreadsheet I've been using to do this (& quite a bit more) & contacted
him to see if it was of interest. Brian suggested that others in the
newsgroup might also be interested - so it's attached to this e-mail,
hope Des doesn't mind but I've not seen anything about not attaching
things to e-mails for this ng.

Beercalc.exe is a self extracting file that will produce an
Excel 5 spread sheet beercalc.xls, there's a step-by-step guide in the
Notes Worksheet. It's designed primarily as a full grain mash beer
design tool & brewing record but I see no reason why it shouldn't be
used for distillation - you just don't need to bother about the hops &
there are a reasonable selection of sugars available. Hope others find
it of use & I'll do my best to answer any further queries - but please
don't ask me for an Imperial quantity version !!
I'm a keen home brewer & whisky drinker but unfortunately,
living under a hostile home distillation regime, producing my own
spirits & distillers@onelist must remain of theoretical interest only
...... but there again Excise Duty is a nasty English tax & we do now
have our own devolved Parliament ....... hmmmmm !!! No, better stick to
home brewing & coppersmith'ing.
All the best fra Auld Reekie
Speak well o' pipers, remember yir faither wis a fiddler.
Sorry Dick, while I have no objections to you posting this
type of info through the list, on this occassion it did not work.
I have edited out a lot as you will notice. Maybe someone can
suggest a means of doing this better. I for one would be interested
in the program.
I am very interested in other members comments on the matter, dont be shy.
