    Hey has anyone come up with a good way to handle double or triple fermentations using the Brewers friend tool?
    Problem is once you have your brew day complete gravity there's no way of tallying the ABV or changes in SG/total volume with extra additions of wort. That I can see??

    I'm currently making a Belgian Dubbel brown SG 1.065 at 18L and will then add another wort from 1kg of malt mix in a couple of days, up to 21L.

    Any thoughts?

    Sounds like we need a brew log entry type that allows for volume and gravity increases along the way.

    This thread talks about the possibility of accounting for the increase from priming sugar:

    GReat question! That would make a nice addition to the tool. I'm currently working with a Honey Porter in this respect. Just racked to secondary on top of 2# of honey. Definitely will change the ABV.
