    I guess this is more of a bug than feature request, but it seems that sugars as fermentables are treated like a grain (unsure which) that has a percent of unfermentables.

    Instead of dropping the FG, as it does in beersmith/real life. really messes with expected FG/est abv when designing recipes. I know that the some sugars will have some unfermentables, but at a bare minimum can the simple sugars be treated as such?

    byo has a chart with some fermentabilities.
