Mash Water Formula update?
« on: October 14, 2021, 09:23:23 AM »
So where mPH 3.0 is one of the mash acid formulas used in BeerSmith, I was wondering if we will see an upgrade in the future to the current version of mPH which is 4.2.  They upgraded their spreadsheet in March of 2020 and on the spreadsheet call the update a "completely new formula for calculating mash pH'.  So it seems as it may be a major upgrade, not a minor one,

The problem I ran into with the latest MPH formulas is that they depend on malt data that is not available for most malts.  I will take a look again but the last time I checked they were based on a series of parameters that are not commercially available for the malts.
