    Today I noticed the DP (Diastatic Power) is not calculating properly. Hence giving a wrong result.

    If I add 4000g of "Unted Kingdon - Maris Otter Pale" the DP is 62, then is I add 500g of "United Kingdom - Brown" the DP changes to 55. All good, it worked as expected.

    However, if I choose "Warminster - Brown Malt" the DP doesn't change and stays at 62. Hence the bug in the calculator.

    Here is the odd thing... So far I've only found malts added to the database by me that do this, but not all of them' Other malts seem to be ok, but I've not checked many..

    Here is another example... Malt DP is 40, the calc says 0, if its the only malt in the list.

    Is warminster Munich a custom malt created by you?

    I've submitted an issue to the devs regarding custom fermentables and the average DP calculation. I'm hoping this is the same issue.

    Yes it is, I have a feeling its to do with custom malts. But not all I'v submitted are effected.

    Some Warminster crystal malts I've submitted calculate correctly.
