Did anyone find this or i am not doing something right,
I am doing a Mead recipe and it seems that the Sugar Breaks are only calculated on projected sugar levels and not corrected to measured SG. This means the 1/3 and 2/3 Sugar Breaks are not corrected for use during brewing.

They are based on the estimated OG and FG, so if your OG is substantially different you may need to adjust.

Yes, it was very different as i was using raisins and honey of which i had no idea on what the SG was to be able to get a better estimate. For the next update to the program, would be nice if you could have it use the measured OG when it is input.
