Whole Hops
« on: November 20, 2004, 05:35:02 PM »
Perhaps a small point,  Since we do NOT use any part of the Hop leaf, shouldn't they be called Whole Hops vs leaf hops?

Choices are currently "Leaf", "Plug", and "Pellet"

Whole hops is referred to as "leaf hops" by many brewers.  Technically, you are correct though.

Cheers!

Then is or is not BeerSmith a technically correct program?

Brad I feel that as a tool for brewers BeerSmith should be technically correct.

Fred,
 I will add it to my "to do" list.  The change is not that difficult.
