Scaling a Recipe
« on: October 26, 2003, 05:43:33 AM »
A quick tip - some users have had problems with...

When scaling a recipe using the "Scale Recipe" command be sure to enter the new boil volume as well as the new recipe size.  (or choose an equipment setting that changes both).

Some users have had problems after they entered a different batch size but left the boil size the same.  This will usually result in a hop amount that is either too large or too small since the program calculates hop utilization based on the boil size.

Cheers!
