Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Wow! That is one dry beer! What yeast do they use for that one?

Might be the Golden Flanders VSS Wyeast had on the last go round.

Looks like a fair amount of simple sugar to dry it up that much.

Re: Piraat Specs
how does one "run" the numbers and find out the original gravity?

Re: Piraat Specs
The easiest way to "run" the numbers is to take a hydrometer and refractometer reading of a degassed sample of the beer and use the alchohol % tool in Pro Mash to determine the O.G. and ADF.

My friend works in a brewery, in the lab.

Degas the beer, place in machine, it spits out your numbers. It should for $10,000!!

I understand it takes the FG and ABV% to extrapolate what the OG was.

Re: Piraat Specs
That would be understandable but you are saying it is spitting out that the abv is 9.71%. However, the beer claims to be 10.5%, or used to at least, but either way I doubt the labels say 9.71%. So, it seems that the machine is spitting out the abv as opposed to using it to figure out the numbers.

Re: Piraat Specs
Piraat comes in 2 levels of ABV. One is 9.5% and the other is 10.5%.

I gave him the 9% bottle, it is the small 12 oz one.
