    I was wondering if it is possible to adjust the default strength of the acids for pH adjustment in the "Recipe Builder".

    It is possible to do it in the "Mash Chemistry and Brewing Water Calculator" but in the "Recipe Builder" under "Other Ingredients" it uses the default strength e.g. 10% for phosphoric acid and 88% for lactic acid.

    Would be nice if this could be customized in order to have the correct amounts (still in grams, but that seems rather a detail) in the recipe.

    Hope somebody can help me with this issue.
    Cheers,

    You want to be able to add the ingredients, but not through the water calculator, correct? That makes sense to me, and I'll definitely make sure we get that done.

    Hi Yooper,
    thanks for your reply. It was very helpful. Just now I realized that it is possible to update the recipe with the items from the Water Calculator.

    However, it would be still very much appreciated if this could be done directly in the Recipe Builder.

    Cheers,

    Yes, I agree. We'll be adding that, or at least a custom additives field that will allow you do add whatever you need.
