Small Batchs
« on: July 10, 2008, 09:22:45 AM »
I am trying to set things up to brew small batches ( 1 or 2 gallons ) i select my brew equipment of a 3 gallon pot , set the batch size to 1 gallon, click the set boil volume based on equipment button and i get a boil volume of -2.15 gallons. The brew sheet is really weird also as it wants me to add 3.00 gallons of water to reach a total of 1 gallon.

Ive gone into the options and set my default equipment to a 3 gallon pot and a 1.00 gallon batch size.

what can i do to get the correct boil volumes ?

Although I cant duplicate the problem here is my take. I would go back to your Equipment and look at the Boiler properties. I think that is the problem. Your final volume may be suspect. I would create a duplicate of one of the equipment profiles and modify that one. I would put the "top up water" to 0 and the Final Volume to 1 Gallon.
