Enter the total volume in the fermenter (gallons) and the average losses (gallons) into the Pre-Boil Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Pre-Boil Volume.

## Pre-Boil Volume Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Pre-Boil Volume.

PBV = VF + AL

Variables:

• PBV is the Pre-Boil Volume (gallons)
• VF is the total volume in the fermenter (gallons)
• AL is the average losses (gallons)

## How to Calculate Pre-Boil Volume?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Pre-Boil Volume.

1. First, determine the total volume in the fermenter (gallons).
2. Next, determine the average losses (gallons).
3. Next, gather the formula from above = PBV = VF + AL.
4. Finally, calculate the Pre-Boil Volume.
5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem :

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total volume in the fermenter (gallons) = 3

average losses (gallons) = 1.75

PBV = VF + AL = ?
