We all know that alcohol corrupts your specific gravity measurements using your refractometer.  The folks at Morebeer have created a speadsheet that allows correction for the erroneous reading so that you can track your entire fermentation without breaking out your hydrometer. 

You can download the spreadsheet here:

The most important thing to keep in mind is that you need the initial hydrometer reading in order for this to work.  Give it a try and enjoy the fact that you no longer have to use a large sample of beer every time you want a specific gravity reading.
