Hop IBUs all at ZERO when designing 1 gallon batches!
« on: June 20, 2018, 04:36:11 PM »
When I try designing a one gallon recipe or scale down an existing recipe to one gallon all the IBUs for hops end up as ZEROS. Help?

Check your equipment profile - you probably did not scale the equipment losses when you changed the batch size, which can lead to strange volumes like zero or negative boil volumes.  I highly recommend scaling by equipment profile as opposed to changing the batch size independently.
