comment How to make the best beer with arduino?
I would add that you could just weigh the fermentor before and while the wort is in it. Since you know the volume, the weight will give you the density. As fermentation proceeds, the weight will drop (as C02 is released)

comment Malt extract fermentability
Excellent! As luck would have it I bought a copy of Designing great beers a few days before asking this question, and it arrived just as your answer did!

Perhaps, however, this wasn't mentioned in the book.

comment What to do when gravity comes out too low?
I experienced this today - the problem was that I took a reading before shaking the fermenter for about 3 minutes. Taking a reading after this mixing gave me the figure I expected (1.050 vs 1.032 before)

comment How does oat malt work for steeping?
Yeah, I was thinking I'd just leave it out and see what the head retention and mouth feel was like. Thanks.
