Title: Sparge instructions use wrong units option?
Post by: Shawn Hargreaves on January 07, 2009, 04:13:12 PM
In my Beer Smith options, I have my batch size units set to gallons, but my mash volume units set to cups (don't ask, that just fits best with how I measure my water).

But in my brewsheet, it shows the sparge volumes in gallons, eg:

    Mash In: Add 50.00 Cup of water at 165.9 F
    Hold mash at 154.0 F for 60 min
    Drain Mash Tun
    Batch Sparge Round 1: Sparge with 0.41 gal of 168.0 F water.
    Batch Sparge Round 2: Sparge with 0.41 gal of 168.0 F water.
    Add water to achieve boil volume of 2.50 gal

If I change the batch size unit option to cups, the sparge volume responds to that, but then I get my total batch size and boil volume in cups as well, when I want those in gallons.

This seems kindof backward - surely the sparge volumes should be displayed using the mash volume unit setting rather than the overall batch size option?

Hi,
  In general I assumed that people measure large volumes such as sparge water in batch units, but I can certainly see your point regarding sparge water.  It probably should be in mash units.

Cheers,
