    Would be nice to be able to add Isomerised hop extract to the ingredients, with appropriate calculator for AA/IBU.

    For example, http://www.brouwland.com/setframes/...atproducts.asp?cfid=4&id=341&pid=338&shwlnk=0

    states it has 6% AA, and according to this post:
    http://www.nationalhomebrewclub.com/forum/index.php/topic,2569.msg30977.html#msg30977

    "From Dirk in Brouland's Technical Department, regarding Isomerised Hop Extract, iso alha acidity 6%:
    "1ml of this extract into 10 liter increases the IBU with 4."

    Be nice to allow for different strengths of such extract. I use it to adjust bitterness, sometimes if I don't have enough bittering hops on hand, or if I'm doing a quick extract brew with short boil time.

    Fantastic software by the way!

    its a new and emerging product, I have seen something similar sold at norther brewery, I'm guessing there would need to be a standard product and tested over and over with the same results to be main stream. as other companies come out with something similar the ibu might change between products, I guess to get buy you can always match the cleanest bittering hop on the list with the same ibu, I'm thinking Magnum you would adjust accordingly
