    I save the recipe after configuring all the inputs, note that the total water volume is 1.96 gallons, the mash water is 1 gallon and sparge water is 0.96 gallons:

    When clicking on "Link" for the Water Calculator it loads only mash water (total water set 1 gallon, mash water set to 1 gallon), missing the 0.96 sparge water:

    Add your sparge water to the mash guidelines- I only see the mash step there. Where it says "add", here:

    Then you will get a step to add your sparge step, and the volume.
    Right now, the water calc "thinks" you aren't sparging.

    OK couple things:

    1. This is a bit confusing because (as pictured) the "Quick Water Requirements" calculator automatically shows sparge water, now I understand it's not "part of the recipe" that the "Water Calculator" considers.

    2. I tried that as you instructed and it still doesn't work:

    Add sparge water:

    Click Save.

    Open "Water Calculator":

    It should be there- can you give me a link to the recipe so I can take a look at why it's missing in the linked water calc, if it's in the mash guidelines?

    I'm not sure if I didn't save the recipe properly in my last test or if something changed but it worked properly when I just tested again.

    Learned something new anyways! Never loaded the sparge water in the mash section before, will now.
