ibrewed a E.S.B. tonite and while looking for my racking cane my 10 yr. old broke my hydro. before i got an O.G. it's relly not her fault because we were both looking franticly for it.
anyway, i did manage to get a S.G., 1.038 @ 200 deg. i ran this through promash hydro adjust, and got a 1.071 reading as a O.G. something is not right, i'm figuring. if anyone can come up w/ the right #'s for me i will be forever indebted to you. btw, this was only 5 gal.

How did you get a reading of 1.038 if you broke your hydrometer?

Was your hydro set for 60f or 68f and was this entered into promash? Off the top of my head I'd say around 1.055 to 1.060

Josh, I know firsthand how many of us like to know precisely what is going on with our beer. With that being said, your ESB doesn't know or care that you don't know the OG. It will ferment along in blissful ignorance and wherever it ends up, that's where it'll be.

Many times, I have forgetten to take an OG reading or an FG reading, usually due to "quality control" homebrew consumption while brewing/bottling. Amazingly enough, my beer turned out fine.

I would assume your OG was near target in promash and leave it at that like Graham said. If you have brewed this before then extra "relax don't worry HAHB" applies.

well i set the temp to 60deg. in promash, i got a reading of 1.038 by forgetting to get a reading after sparge and before the boil. so i ended up get it (and remembering to get it) just before boil.
and yes i'am kind of anal. and i'll tell ya' what... it really doesn't care 'cause it's bubbling now!!!!!!!

Before the boil at how many gallons? What did you boil to?

Now if you had 1.038 @200F = + 8 or 9.

So 1.046 at the start of boil but...............
If you had 6 gal. an boiled to 5 the the SG would have been......1.055 roughly.

In order to be exact we need your pre- an post boil volume.

Relax my buddy made a scotch ale the other month did not even bother to check the G, still came out great? Go figure.

OK so 1.038 @ 200 = 1.057 or slightly greater

57 x 6.5 = 370.5

5.25 / 370.5= 1.070 SG

Why does anyone use pro-mash?

Learn the math it easy an fun.............
