    My apologies if this isn't the correct spot to post this.

    I just entered my last log entries while packaging my latest beer. The brew log Alcohol and Attenuation section tells me that I'll have 183.2 calories per 16 ounce pour.

    However, out of curiosity I also entered my OG (1.056) and FG (1.010) into the ABV Calculater. They both state the same ABV of 6.04. However, the ABV Calculator shows 183.2 calories per 12 ounce pour.

    Which one is correct?

    Thanks!

    My self made calculator derives a result of 180 calories for 12 ounces.

    Thanks for the response. The 12 ounce figure is I see to what I thought it should be. Was surprised when I saw it doe 16 ounces. Must be a glitch someplace.

    Yes, I would trust the ABV calculator as that code hasn't changed.

    I'm opening a ticket to review the brew log calorie calculation and get that patched.
