Running FermCalc

There are two different versions of FermCalc:

  1. A Java version that can be run two different ways:
    1. As an online calculator that runs as a Java Applet inside your browser window.
    2. As a stand-alone calculator that you can download and install on your computer.
  2. A JavaScript version designed for mobile devices that don't run Java.
Both versions include identical functionality and mathematics.
To run the Java version, you'll need to install the Java Virtual Machine. You can download and install it by clicking on the Java button below. The JavaScript calculator does not require installation of the Java Virtual Machine.
FermCalc has been tested with the following browsers:

By using FermCalc, you agree to the all of the terms of the FermCalc License Agreement.

Description
-----------
WineCalc is a helper application of The Home Winemaking Page. It can be
used to:
· Calculate the amount of sugar that needs to be added to archieve a
particular target SG or alcohol content in the finished wine.
· Calculate the SG or alcohol content that is abtained by adding a
particular amount of sugar to the must.
· Calculate acidity adjustments.
· Calculate the proportions, in which to blend two wines.
· Convert various measurements between the Metric, US and Imperial systems.

Operating systems
-----------------
Windows 95 - Tested, OK
Windows 98 - Tested, OK
Windows NT - Tested, OK
Windows 2000 - Not tested, but should work OK
Windows ME - Not tested, but should work OK
Windows XP - Tested, OK


What is it for?
---------------
Before starting a fermentation, it is common to set yourself a target
for the finished wine, a specific alcohol content, or a specific gravity
(SG) to start from. These parameters can be typed into WineCalc.
WineCalc's calculations are based on the "Sugar and Alcohol", "Acids"
and "Conversion Tables" chapters of the Home Winemaking Book / Page.
It uses several linear data-fits on the hydrometer table's data to
perform the sugar calculations, together with a compensation for volume
increase due to sugar addition, and the Pearson square for the blending
calculations.
It should make these calculations easier, since you don't need to
perform them all by hand, and have them all in one program. Of course
you should still understand what the principles of the calculations are.
