Water Additions Accuracy?
« on: December 28, 2019, 06:14:50 PM »
New to water additions, I am comparing BS3 to BRU'n Water v5.5. They are WAY off from each other.
So as a new guy to water additions, which one do I trust? (This happened on several different water profiles)
I do know that BS3 does not have all the additions that Bru'n Water has. So when I was comparing the two, I made sure to use the same additions between the two programs, to at least TRY to make sure I was comparing apples to apples.

Also, has the lactic acid / PH calculations been fixed? I believe I read that it should be set for 145% until it is fixed?

Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated,

Not a lot of detail on what you entered and where they are "off" to go by. 

To my knowledge, the issue with the mash buffering capacity has not been addressed by M. Riffe but applying the correction to acid concentrations seems to compensate for the issue.
