    I picked up some grains that are not listed on the calc page( Patagonia C55 and patagonia C 15), wondering if I use crystal 60 and 15 will work for the overall? My abv looks low not sure if this is contributing.. THX

    just match up the color, the crystal 15 and crystal 55 or close will work, doesn't matter what country, you can also create a custom fermentable, but have to add the ppg , as a test add a crystal save it then look at the ppg to the right, you can gage off that

    Thank you Ozarks, I see the error in my thinking- I thought I was gaining sugars from these grains but it was just color, think I will be using row malts in the future

    crystal is not just color it adds a flavor too, paraphrasing the difference between a oven roaster steak and a grilled till golden brown one, same steak just more caramel sweet flavor
