    I love the new alcohol and attenuation feature that updates with each reading. However I'm confused with the part that says "Actual OG". Shouldnt that say "Actual FG" or "Terminal Gravity"? When I enter my fermentation complete entry I would expect it to say one of those two, not OG.

    Cheers!

    You are right, it should say Actual FG.

    Nice catch, will be fixed in the next release! It is a one letter code change. You don't see to many of those! :lol:

    Just to make thinks more complicated, there is actually a notion of actual OG for beers and it is independent of the SG the original wort had.

    For example, if you are priming with sugar the actual OG of the beer increases by about 3 gravity points even though nobody sees it like that.

    I always measure FG before adding priming sugar.
