Discrepancy of refractometer calibration between version 2 and version 3

Hello everyone,

As I am about to use Beersmith 3 I just checked if the calibration data from v2 had been imported to v3, which does not seem to be the case. So instead of re-calibrating, because I have not brewed yet, I decided to use the numbers I got from v2 and use them for v3.

So, in v2 my calibration numbers were 14,80 Brix and 1,060 for the hydro with a correction factor of 1,00952 but when I enter these same numbers in v3 it gives me a correction factor of 1,00398...

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
