    I'm from continental Europe and most of my ingredients is not listed in default selection so i have to add them as "custom". Unfortunately in case of fermentables i have to specify US units for colour and extract (L and PPG respectively). I'd like to be able to specify them according to my general units preference - as EBC and % extract by weight.

    We can eventually allow that, I know Kaiser wants that too.

    For now manual conversion will be needed, but it is simple:

    ppg is obtained by multiplying the % extract by 46. So if the % extract is 80, then 0.8 * 46 = 36.8 ppg.

    (EBC + 1.2) / 2.65 = Lovibond, so if the EBC is 10, then the Lovibond is ~4.3

    Thank you. For now I'll just calculate these values by hand. :)

    I'd like that option too.

    Is it somewhere on the roadmap to add EBC to the ingredients database? I'm really missing this option.

    Thanks for bumping this, I'll add it to our list of things we can look into adding at some point.
