    In the fermentable table in the browse tab what does PPG stand for?

    Thanks Bob. So is a higher number mean it's more fermentable to possibly produce more sugars?

    Yep. As examples, sucrose (table sugar) is 100% fermentable and gives you 46 PPG. Most base malts have potentials in the area of 34 to 38 PPG which would relate to the percentage of fermentability.
