Lactic acid calculations
« on: November 17, 2021, 12:10:25 PM »
I read an earlier post that indicated that the model used for calculating the acid additions had an error the recommended solution was to set the acid concentration to between 140% - 150%. Has this been corrected for the current version?
I am running the desktop version (v3.2.7).

The earlier post was from December 2019

  Yes you can use the alternate model "BW" which you can select from the mash tab or even within your equipment profile.  This model uses a lower acid addition.
