    How do you get a lovibond and ppg for custom items as the recipe builder calculates these auto for listed grains?

    Lovibond? Search and hope there's a reference. Extract potential, dissolve a pound in a gallon of water and take a gravity reading. Or mash it if it will convert itself. Or search and hope you can find a reference. There are very comprehensive tables of fermentables out there.
