Would you be able to indicate on a scanned image of a table, what should be read? I am wondering if column headings should be read each time, or is there a simpler method?

Hi chris, that depends. Your section contains a few, but they should all be fairly easy to read.

The first
Dryness of malt. 119 degrees. Heat of effervescence. 0. 124 degrees, 3 1/2. 129 degrees, 7 ...
The following one with strong beer and small beer in the same way. There are a few others with only two columns that would be read in the same way.

Then the next one is difficult, the scanned page also doesnt give clarity, so id just read it as it is
2 quarters of hard malt, 9 quarters of true malt 1,56 volume of 1,74 volume at 130° of dryness —— 1 quarter —— 3,12 15,66 3,12 volume of 2 quarters of hard corn
Total
numb. 11 18,78
1,70 true volume of one quarter of this malt to one barrel of water, and consequently the eleven quarters will fill a space equal to that of 6,47 barrels.

Mashes 1st Deg. of heat, 157° Barrels of water used, 16 Quantity ooled in by calculation, 3/4 Boiling water by calculation; —— barrels, 15¼, Allowances for incidents, great copper, Less 2 inches 1/4.
Then read the second third fourth and fifth in the same way.

The other tables go with the same rules. Let me know if you need extra help! If you come up with a way to shorten the reading, let us know. Reading tables is difficult, but it needs not be a drama :thumbs:

Thanks!

I'm sure you haven't checked the forum yet, but I'm wondering how "57,60" should be read for the purpose of this recording. I'm in America, so I would read it as "fifty-seven point six," but didn't know if I should retain the English style by saying "fifty-seven comma six." Just let me know how you want me to read it and I will read it that way!

Hi! I would read it the way you read it in your country (with a dot or point) which is the way I would read it too as I am in Canada.

Carolin is in Europe so she should be checking the forum during our night....

Thank you both :thumbs:

57 point 6 is absolutely fine. It will be a lot clearer to the listener that way which is what we aim for as much as possible :)
