is a handy and effective App to perform easily and accurately a few different calculations about beer production and analysis: color, bitterness, strength… Useful for homebrewers but also for brewers and tasters!
The App consists of a few different and indipendent sections, each one concerning different calculations, specifically color, bitterness, and strength (gravity and ABV) using hydrometer and refractometer. Each section has its own help pages and explanations of the various functions.
In the Beer Color section it is possible to visualize the approximate color of a beer with a given EBC.
The Hydrometer section allows for gravity/extract conversion (OG, FG) between different scales of measurement, their correction according to temperature and the extimation of alcohol content.
The Refractometer section contains the correction function that, taking into account the reading distortion due to the alcohol, allows using this instrument also during and after fermentation; besides, by correlating the measurements obtained both with hydrometer and refractometer, it is possible to "analyze" a beer (homebrewed or commercial) extimating its original and final gravity and alcohol content: this is accomplished by way of purposely developed proprietary formulas.
In the IBU section it is possible to add up to 12 hop additions for the extimation of bitterness (IBU), with the possiblity to take out and back each addition from the calculation, and to choose among the different formulas commonly used.

Let's start homebrewing!! :)
Brewzor Calculator is for the home brewer and professional brewer. Hopefully it will help you brew better beer and simplify your brew day.
THIS VERSION IS *BETA* AND *WILL* HAVE BUGS.
The following calculators are included:
Strike Temperature: Calculates infusion temperature, volume and water/grain ratio needed for your initial strike.
Mash Infusion: Calculates infusion temperature and volume needed to raise the temperature of the mash.
Decoction Volume: Calculates the decoction volume needed to raise the temperature of the mash.
Batch Sparge: Calculates mash water volumes, water/grain ratio, and grain absorption.
Gravity Correction: Calculates amount of extract or water needed to alter the gravity of a given volume of wort.
Boil Off: Calculates starting, ending, boil off and temperature corrected volumes for a boil.
Hop Bitterness: Calculates estimated IBUs for a given wort and hop schedule.
Hop Alpha Correction: Calculates the new hop weight needed to provide the same IBUs of the original hop when the new hop is a different alpha and or hop form (Pellet, Plug, or Leaf).
Kettle Volume: Calculates volumes in a cylindrical vessel.
Yeast Pitching Rate: Calculates the number of cells needed for optimal fermentation. Allows for multiple steps when additional cells must be grown.
Carbonation: Calculates CO2 pressure, and priming sugar weights needed to carbonate beer.
Gyle: Calculates the amount of gyle needed to carbonate beer.
Efficiency: Calculates brewhouse efficiency.
Hydrometer Correction: Calculates the corrected gravity when a hydrometer sample is not at the calibration temperature.
Alcohol / Attenuation: Calculates real and apparent attenuation as well as alcohol by weight and volume.
Refractometer: Calculates corrected gravity values when taking readings with a refractometer.
Styles: BJCP Style Guide
Color Estimate: Calculates estimated color for a given SRM or EBC.
Unit Conversions: Common unit conversions.
