    When I create a recipe and get to the Mash Guidelines section, I have the Starting Mash Thickness set at 1.25 qt/lb. My recipe has a total of 11lb of grains. Every time I click in the Starting Mash Thickness field, the amount of strike water updates to 0.3 gallons, which is WAY off. This should be 13.75 qts or 3.4 gallons. If I manually update the amount to 13.75 qt, if I click inside the Starting Mash Thickness box again, it will revert back to .3 gallons. Any ideas what's going on here?

    Unfortunately I'm unable to replicate the issue on firefox or chrome. The only thing I can think of is if there's a custom fermentable that's set to a category other than "grain" it does not count towards the mash thickness calculations. Is that the case? If not, are you willing to make a public recipe so we can take a look?
