    As usual, I'm probably misunderstanding the interface but I have a recipe where I'm adding 10lbs of strawberries to the fermenter. I was happy to see that BrewersFriend has strawberries as an option in the dropdown but when I add it as a late addition to the fermenter, it doesn't change the ABV or gravity at all.
    I can understand it maybe not effecting the OG (if that represents the chilled wort alone) but I would assume it would effect the FG a little and definitely the ABV.
    If I say it's in the boil kettle, the ABV goes up but it doesn't really represent the recipe.

    Could it be a tiny bug in the calculations or am I misunderstanding the logic?
    Thanks!

    I submitted a bug for this awhile ago and had forgotten about it. I've added this thread to my ticket and gave it a bump. In the meantime I recommend using late:kettle for the correct recipe stats.

    Thanks for posting, and sorry for the confusion! We should have fixed this previously but it slipped through the cracks.
