  1. Default common abbreviations

    I am a squeaky clean brew-hag wanna be. I have been reading this forum for the past week or so and find many abbreviations that I do not understand. I am sure I am not alone
    As my local book stores did not have any books on mead in stock I have to wait until amazon sends me my book.
    In the mean time - would some of you experienced mead makers be so good as to deffine some of the commonly used abbreviations on this site?
    SG and OG are two I have seen often. As well as the term Brix.
    There are more but they escape my memory just now.
    A good list of abbreviations will be helpful for anyone just starting out.
    Thanks much!

    GotMead has a glossary (Vicky, its hard to find).

    http://www.gotmead.com/mead-research/glossary-a.shtml

    It doesn't have SG specifically there, but has Specific Gravity.

    SG, OG, FG (Specific Gravity, and Original/Final Gravity)

    Some other abbreviations

    IMHO, IMO, IIRC, YMMV (In My Honest Opinion, In My Opinion, If I Recall Correctly, Your Mileage May Vary)

    The one I had problems with was TLA.

    It turns out to stand for Three Letter Abbreviation.

    g,d, and r (grinning, ducking, and running for cover)

    I'd say, keep posting when you have a question on a specific abreviation, or acronym. If you're not sure about OG or SG, you may not have a good understanding about the concepts behind the letters. Post away, ask for more clarification. There are lots of people on this forum who are only too happy to help out.
