Rager, Garetz, Tinseth?? Which formula works best?

Mon Jan 30, 2006 9:03 am

I am using ProMash to build some recipes and wanted to get input from everyone in the forum on which Hop Utilization formula to use. I know all 3 are similar, but is there a "best" one to use?

I have used Rager's formula in the past, but wanted to get field input to see if anyone believes the other formulas give a more accurate estimation of IBU's.

Thanks

ahh. I forget which is which, but I use the one for full boils.. because, I do full boils. - if I remember right... tinseth is the partial (higher gravity) boil and you get less utilization.- maybe that's the rager..


I forget.

that was a hell of a night. I wanted to call in, got busy, tried, and the line was busy.


I would like for the FatTire dis-ers to try to make some of that ass-y beer, and send it to me.

That show got me riled up. Yes, There are "better" beers.. but come on!..... :D


Good show. good brews.

Use Rager if you do partial boils and use Tinseth if you do full boils.
