Homebrew Calculators

This is a quick and dirty project to make homebrew calculators that are just simple, self-encapsulated html and javascript pages that I understand in their entirety.

To use the calculators just click any of the titles below, or clone the beercalcs repository for offline use.

Sugar Calc

This calculates the amount of priming sugar in ounces (and grains for my scale) based on the weight of the brew. Just tare the scale with an empty 1 gallon growler/carboy, weigh the full growler, plug the numbers in, and add that much sugar for bottling. A life saver for one gallon brews where doing the math manually for the different conversions would be time inefficient compared to the brew size.
