Mr Malty
« on: March 13, 2016, 05:15:20 PM »
The last two days I've been unable to connect to the mrmalty.com website.
Keep getting the HTTP 404 error message.
Anyone else having something similar?

Same here. I don't really like his yeast calculator, so I'm not that upset about it.

Uh-oh... maybe in his new profession he's unable to pay the bills?  ;)

I'm sure at least a hundred people if not 300 will let him know right away that the site is down and he'll get it up again soon.

Two main reasons. 1) As far as I know, he never actually published his data. 2) His growth formulas don't line up with what other researchers, or homebrewers have found.

I prefer the models based on Kaiser's data. In particular I use the one over at brewunited, which has a built in support for harvesting yeast from the starter.

I like Brewers Friend and the HomeBrew Dad calculators. I actually used a lot of the info from the latter when I made my SNS calculator.

I always agreed with Mark's nuclear bomb analogy when it comes to pitching yeast. Using a yeast calc is a good idea to get in the ballpark. They're all close enough to each other to give good results. Past that it's about freshness and viability.

I like the Mr Malty app. I've never found another yeast app. I don't like most of the other sites because they are not formatted for cell phone.

Brewunited's works well on phones in my experience.
