Recipe percentages

Postby nicadrick » Sun Feb 27, 2011 2:31 pm

It would be helpful to be able to key-in a certain percentage of each grain to a recipe. The left-right scroll function currently available is difficult to use.

88% 2-row
5% Crystal 60
2% CaraPils
2% Wheat malt
1% Chocolate malt

On prints include grist percentages as well.

i also would like to see this... especially the percentage listed on the recipe sheet.

you can enter your recipe in percentages like this:

.88 (at whatever units you want) 2-row
.05 Crystal 60
.02 CaraPils
.02 Wheat malt
.01 Chocolate malt

then play with the water volume until you get your desired OG. now check the scale box and adjust the water back down to your batch size. the grain bill will scale accordingly by weight.

I currently work around this easily enough but would like to be able to enter % of grain bill and target OG and it calculate my grain weights for me.
