    Recipe editor says 22B cells required.
    Yeast Pitch Rate and Starter Calculator says Target Pitch Rate Cells: 82 billion cells

    Not sure which figure is correct?

    Same issue here. Recipe viewer says 101B for my recipe, editor says 38B. Both the separate calculator, and doing by hand support the 101B figure.

    Changing to imperial units corrects the error. Looks like unit confusion in the editor.

    that number is not correct until you use the calculator for that recipe, the calculator is correct, Im not sure if the cell on the recipe gets updated after using the calculator but it should

    The number stays consistently wrong regardless of what you do in there :) .

    The error appears to be in the Javascript shown it the screenshot (pretty printed). The "batchsize" global variable is in gallons in my editor regardless of the fact that I'm working in litres. As it assumes the batchsize is in metric units instead, it is failing to convert the value in gallons to litres before calculating the pitch rate, hence returning just over a quarter of the correct number.
