negative sparge volume recommendations from Beersmith
« on: May 28, 2012, 03:01:17 PM »
why would Beersmith be calculating a " - 7.04" gallon sparge volume for  simple single infusion all grain 5 gallon batch of blonde ale? Why the negative number? Everything in the menu seems to be ok.

check your settings. should be 1.25qts of water per lb of grain in the mash. and .50gal of water per lb for the sparge. sounds like something is off.
