Version History:
<2.0 Various updates not tracked.
2.0: Revamped to add Metric units ability, pulldown and cascading menus, data validation in important cells, lists for
grain/sugar/hops/yeast ingredients, combined the Mash Calcs tab with the Brewhouse tab, predict FG, calculate actual IBUs
compared to predicted, AAU columns, expected and actual attenuation, expected ABV, improved descriptions of some paramet
and other settings, improved readability, and added a refractometer section. Updated for Office 2010. (some functions do not w
on Office 2007 or earlier.) Added BJCP category and style.

2.0.1 - Fixed issue with first row of Grain List (acidulated malt) causing #NA errors. Added empty first row as workaround.
2.0.2 - Changed website information
