    Hey Austin, any chance we could get a feature by which we can enter the grist percentages, fermentor volume and desired ABV and have the calculator work backward to grist weights? I know it involves quite a few variables....

    I created my own spreadsheet just so I can do exactly that... it's a great approach that nobody else seems to implement.

    I also have one. It calculates off of OG, but it does calculate ABV off of OG and yeast attenuation. Let me know if interested.

    This would be a very cool feature; meanwhile, I'd love to see those spreadsheets if y'all don't mind!

    I know this is an old request... but... I was thinking the very same thing the other day.
    Is this something on the radar for development?
    Percentages reflect weight and weight reflects percentages. Both fields editable...
    So you can add grist by weight or percentages...
    Thanks,
    Matt...
