looks good. I'll give it a try this weekend. I did notice one thing which is it appears in the calculated area the Liter/Gallon choice isn't totally working on the First and Second runnings fields. The tag changes to L when I set it to liters but the actual volumes remain in Gallons.

Results

Pre-Boil: 48.99 L at 10.1°P (1.04) First Runnings: 6.34 L at 17.2°P (1.07)
Post-Boil: 40 L at 12.3°P (1.05) Second Runnings: 6.6 L at 4.4°P (1.017)
Boiloff: 8.99 L (18.3%)   
Lauter Efficiency: 83.4%

I'll double check my numbers.  I also plan to brew within the next few days (hey, I'm not working for a few months, why not?) and try it again.

What's up Denny...did you get a work furlough?

I completely forgot to try this calculator during my brewday Sunday...Sorry Sean.

I'll give it a try sooner than later.

Long story, Ron, but I'm on "paid administrative leave".  I may just retire rather than go back.

I forgot to enter my numbers, too, but I've got the info so I'll try it later.

Thanks for catching that. It should be fixed now.

I dunno, Denny... paid leave sounds like just about the ideal situation to me... ;)

Hope everything works out for you.

Did you go all loose cannon and violate someone's civil rights?  Did the captain say "I hate to do this but I need your badge Denny" while shaking his head sadly?

It would be ideal if it was permanent!  I'll know by the end of the month if I'm going to go back to work or just call it.  Having not worked in 2 months, it's kinda hard to think about going back.
