    Hello,

    I've just noticed some discrepancies between Gladfield's published colour for Dark Chocolate and Roast Barley.

    Gladfield's website has Dark Chocolate at 1300EBC = 488L, but the recipe editor says 600L
    Gladfield's website has Roasted Barley at 1350EBC = 507L, but the recipe editor says 736L

    Is there a way to rectify this?

    Thanks

    Great - thank you! .Might be worth checking the other varieties too. I noticed the Light Chocolate was out too.

    Those were all entered by EBC, and converted. I think it came directly from Gladfield (but can't remember exactly). I can change that one too.

    You got it! Their site says 425-475L, so I put it in as 450L. Thanks!

    There's still something funny going on.

    I get wild variations in ph and in colour depending on whether I select 'New Zealand - Roast Barley' or 'Gladfield - Roast Barley'. Same for 'New Zealand - Light Chocolate' compared with 'Gladfield - Light Chocolate'. They're the same product??

    I will look at that. Is that happening in the recipe builder, or in the water calculator? If you have a screenshot that would be very helpful.

    @Yooper it looks like gladfield light chocolate is classified as a base malt instead of a roasted malt.

    Weirdly, many of the Gladfield malts were added as base malts. @Pricelessbrewing I wonder if it came via a download as there is not any indication that one of us entered it.
    I fixed them, so please let me know if there are any further questions or problems.
