Works Great


This is a big help for volume and strike temps. Very quick and easy. I don't need to perform any adjustments like others because I preheat my MLT so there is no loss from that. If you don't preheat, you will need to compensate for that loss outside of this apps calculations. If you preheat your tun, you should nail your mash temp. It even nails the strike temp for protein rest on a two step infusion. (Which uses lower thickness and temps than typical single step numbers.) Also, I've only used this for 5 gallon batches. Not sure how scaling would affect accuracy.

Time Saver, but not perfect


I have been brewing about 20 years but have only been doing all grain for the last three. The water amounts seem to be in line with my manual calculations, but the strike water temps on this app, like my own calculations, seem to be a bit low. Trying to attain a mash temp of 155 Degrees Fahrenheit resulted in a 143F mash. I had to use corrective actions to adjust the mash temp. This could be due to my particular setup though. I would use it again just for the time savings in water volume calculation. When I reached my wort volume, the remaining OG in the mash tun was 1.008, which was the right time to stop.

If it doesn't work, you are doing it wrong


I saw several reviews blaming this app for inaccurate strike temps, but I have had 100% accurate results. Take your strike temp from the mash tun not the liquor tank. You have to adjust for the drop in temperature your equipment may cause. I go 10 degrees higher and after transfer the water is the correct temp or a degree too high (so I wait a few before dough in). I do not use the boil time feature.
