    According to what I've been reading the first addition of hops at "first wort" to kettle as opposed to adding at start of boil for 60 min. Should add about 10% to the IBU calculation but a "softness" to the hop flavoring according to some. But when entering a hop addition as "First Wort". Instead of Boil for 60 min. The BF program calculated the IBUs way lower... Am I missing something here or is there a bug in the program ??

    My understanding is that we are changing this- to be 60 minutes (or however long the boil is) + 10%, to better estimate the IBUs. I'll check with the developer again and see where I am with that.

    This is a bit frustrating - I keep (almost) underestimating my IBUs. Please fix!

    I'm so sorry for this delay. It's not a good excuse but the guy who had it fixed (he said) apparently did not, and then for other reasons as well, he's no longer with Brewer's Friend. We are getting it fixed, and have a new guy on board who is working on these things to bring us back up to speed. This has been frustrating for sure!
