Sparge Volume is negative
« on: November 30, 2013, 11:55:47 PM »
Hi guys and gals!

I've created a recipe recently with my own customize equipment, which I think I've done correctly.

But the sparge water show negatively.

Has it happens to someone before?

Maybe the screenshots will help you a little more :


Thanks!

+1 to Tom's request.

At first glance, it seems you may have something in the equipment profile that is expecting you to add water. Is there anything in the "Top Up Water to Kettle" field. That should be zero, unless you actually add water to the kettle after the mash.

Oh thanks guys!

I thought the "Top Up Water to Kettle" was the size of the kettle.  Silly me.
