    The IBU stats went up (doubled) on my IPA recipes where dry hopping and zero minute boil additions are present. Did something change on the those calcs?

    I've noticed the same! My First Wort additions in BF are now ridiculous. Spent the morning checking the math. I've always also noticed a huge disparity in IBU calculations between the BF software on my computer and the app on my phone.

    I made a very minor change to the grain bill on a 70 IBU IPA and after saving the recipe the IBUs went to 140.

    5.5 gallon batch was about 12 oz of hops, now to keep IBUs at 70 get about 4 oz of hops.
