Helpful Distillation Related Calculators

Post by rad14701 » Thu Apr 28, 2011 7:21 am

The file attached is an HTML page which contains a subset of the calculators I use on my local PC's... The HTML file needs to be extracted from the zipped file after saving... If you save this file on your PC it will open in your web browser and provide several helpful calculations... Some of these calculators were adapted from the parent site and the balance were coded by me... The HTML markup includes stylesheet classes but I did not provide the CSS code but everything works fine as-is...

The calculators included are:
  • Sugar Wash Calculator
  • Alcohol Content of the Wash
  • Distillate To Water Calculator
  • Dilution Calculator
  • Temperature Converter
  • Heating Time To Temp
  • Vapor Speed Calculator
Enjoy...

Thanks Rad, nice to have all that in one spot offline. If it had the Dilution Calculator from the Parent site it would be the total package. That's the one I use the most.'hint hint' :wink: Alcholometer temp correction chart or calculator would be very useful as well... Thanks again :thumbup:

Ooppss...!!! Didn't realize I'd left the dilution calculator out... I'll try to re-upload tomorrow complete with the dilution calculator... As I stated, this is a subset of the calculators I have on my own personal page... I can see where correction calculators would also be helpful...

I have been working on updating the parent site (and fixing a bunch of problems with the 'current' one). All of these calcs will be on a page on the new update, when released.

I will post the URL here, when it gets released.

Rad,

When I open the file, I have to download WinRAR or something like that too. Free for only 40 days. Is there another way to open the files? Complete Computer Moron I Am.

These calcs are all on the parent site. The exact page for them is:

http://homedistiller.org/calcs/rad14701" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" rel="nofollow

All of the calcs from original parent site, have been collected, and placed in this 'menu' http://homedistiller.org/calcs" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" rel="nofollow along with some additional new calcs.

There is a 'better' pot still calc. It is similar to Tony's original, but has a ton more bells / whistles. It is in php, so I could do a whole lot more in the programming of this. http://homedistiller.org/calcs/husker_pot_calc_v2.php" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" rel="nofollow

Here is a ethanol / water mix, temp correction calculator. No longer do you have to use a small table to do temp conversions. This one will allow you to enter the ABV you see, and the temp, and give you the 'real' ABV. It is scaled to a 20C alcoholometer http://homedistiller.org/calcs/husker_temp_convert.php" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" rel="nofollow

Does anyone know if there is a diastatic power calculator out there. Would be great to be able to type in the lintner and the over all mash volume to find out straight away the amount of malt and adjuct needed 8)
