    Not sure what is going on here, but it looks as if the conversion from grams to teaspoons is inconsistent between the form in the brew session and that of the mash calculator.


    Gypsum is OK. I haven't tried weighing to see if one is closer, and with the potential for water absorption I'm not sure there is a good answer. But consistency is what I'm after (and I'm not really adding 20g to my 5-gallon batch!).

    Thanks. -PZ

    Always weigh. There's too much variability to try to measure ingredients by volume.

    In fact, if I were recommending based on this post, I'd recommend removing Tsp conversions from the calculator - too much room for error.
