Water unit selection option ?
« on: August 01, 2011, 09:40:05 PM »

Would you consider an option for units for water additions.

Currently, we input in grams of chemical addition to get a particular water setup.
But I would like to see the chemical additions in the ingredients list shown in teaspoon units.
(I don't know how to convert grams into teaspoons.)

ive been using these numbers with success ,i believe they were from palmers book.most anyway.
1tsp =1.8g cal carbonate
1tsp =4g gypsum
1tsp =3.4g cal chloride
1tsp =4.5g epsom salt
1tsp =4.4g baking soda
1tsp =6g non iodized salt
i use the ez water spreadsheet where you can insert these values above the chemicals so you do not forget them
