Malt Extract Gravity and Color Calculator


Brewer's Lair has added a new brewing calculator to predict the amount of dry or liquid malt extract that you need to achieve your target original gravity, and it also predicts the beer's final color. First, you enter your target orginal gravity and adjust the desired recipe yield as needed. Then you select the type of malt extract, either dry or liquid, and the color such as extra light, light, amber, or dark. The calculator then computes the amount of extract that you need, and predicts the resulting beer's final color. This calculator works in both English and metric units.

Check out this new brewing calculator in the Lair Brewhouse.
