Title: AAU's are WAY off.
Post by: twoodward15 on April 24, 2009, 08:09:34 PM
Can someone explain how I can add 10 ounces of 6% AA hops in an 11 gallon batch and have 3 AAU's??  Why doesn't this calculate correctly?

What's the "Hop Use", and "Boil for" time?
When I set mine to "Boil" and 60 then I get 161.9 IBU (EDIT: also got 60 AAU).

mmmm HopBomb!  8)

Also note that the specific formula called out in the settup can have an impact on your results.

Hi,
  If you have one of the older versions I believe it calculates AAUs per gallon which might account for your concern.
