Steeping/Whirlpool Hops factor, not adjustable.
« on: June 29, 2018, 11:08:14 AM »
The Hop steeping/whirlpool factor in options is not available in v3. It is set to 50% under 90C, but cannot be adjusted as per V2.

Is this deliberate?

What I have been told br Brad is that the whirlpool/steeping factor is redundant with the ability to set whirlpool temperature, which affects the utilization of the alpha acids.

Great, I just checked and there is now a Whirlpool temp setting for the hop additions, much better as I often drop in two additions at different temps.
