Color range is always in SRM
« on: April 20, 2017, 10:44:33 AM »
Color Range in a Water Analysis is always expressed in SRM. It doesn't get affected by the prefered color unit in Options.

Greetings PaRaP - I believe that color reference is based on the input data in the water report and it is suggesting the best color range of beer based on the residual alkalinity of your water input before any water adjustments.  Mine is 23-27 SRM.
I'm done brewing for a while. :(  The "sight glass" on my Polar Ware 15 gal. brew kettle took a dump for the 4th time and Polar Ware can't come up with a fix and their response to this issue ignored the fact that their plastic sight gauge repeatedly fails under normal operating conditions!! >:(

I think his issue is that even when he changes the color default to EBC, it does not reflect the correct color range as EBC values but keeps the same values as with SRM color.

Definitely something to be corrected, hopefully in future releases.

The issue is what Oginme is explaining. Sorry if I didn't get clear in the first post.

If I change from EBC to SRM, the numeric value is the same (but the label "EBC" changes to "SRM")

thanks!

I see that now!  Good catch!  My mistake!
