    Those values are all automatically calculated, based on your input of grains and hops.

    In some cases I can see where this feature would be nice to have: You change the OG and the program recalculates grain bills, likewise with IBUs.... Austin?

    I'm also thinking percentages on that note

    I've done it with an excel macro. It calculates PPG for a pound of the total grist (with efficiency,) then it divides the total sugar expected by that amount, which gives me the weight necessary, then I just divide it out by percentages. Works like a charm. Mine is obviously very basic and simple since I didn't care to make it look good :lol:
