im finding the pre-boil estimate quite different from beersmith 1.4.  In 1.4 the pre-boil estimate was always spot on for me but the 2.0 version seems too high.

were there purposeful changes to this?  fwiw my eff % is 84.

tks,

tg

Hi,
  The pre-boil estimate is done working backwards from the OG accounting for losses and such.  I'm not certain why it would be dramatically different though we did modify the equipment profiles quite a bit to make sure we fully account for realistic losses.  The earlier version had a lot of fields set to zero by default.
