-Click on the "Calculate" Button.
-Your converted value will be displayed in the corresponding "Calculated Value" edit box.

Bitterness Calculator Example:
-If you know the target Alpha Acid Units for your recipe, then click on "AAU to Hop weight in ounces" radio button.
-If you wish to know your beer's AAU based upon the weight of the added hops then click on the "Hop weight in ounces to AAU" radio button.
-Regardless of the desired conversion, enter the alpha acid percentage of the hops in the "Hop Alpha Acid %" edit box.
-Depending on which radio button you chose, enter your Hop weight in ounces or the recipe Alpha Acid Units in the appropriate edit box.

NOTE: If you are using Windows 95 and the text of the JAVA programs does not fit properly into the gray areas, then you need to change your font properties to small vice large.

Equations for the Beer Analysis and Specific Gravity Correction portions of the JAVA calculators were taken from the "Brew by the Numbers" article in the Summer 1995 issue of Zymurgy.
