    Hi everyone,

    I am a very new BrewersFriend user and am only just beginning to learn how to use the recipe editor. I have recently imported all my recipes over from another site that is not supported anymore. The issue I'm having is that in all my recipes the IBU's are well higher than my original recipes i.e. 69 IBU vs 39 IBU. All the quantites are the same so I don't know why the difference. The other site I used to use used Tinseth as the IBU formula and have selected the same on BF.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Are your recipes using whirlpool additions, or some other additions that have a 0 IBU in the other software? That can often be the difference.
