Hop Bitterness

(1/1)

Rob_85:
Some help please...

Why am I getting two very different bitterness calculation values using the recipe calculator and the Hop Bitterness calculator? The recipe gives me 12.7IBU and the specific calculator 42.3IBU.

I reckon the specific calculator is correct and the recipe one could be wrong.

Any suggestions on fixing the recipe calculation?

Thanks, Rob

brewfun:
Is the recipe a full boil? From the screen shot, it looks like it's 3.xx liters?

Max wort saturation is about 100 IBU. In a partial boil, this is reduced by the same portion of dilution to get your full batch volume.

BOB357:
You need to enter the same pre boil volume in the hop bitterness calculator as you did in the recipe.
