    Noticed that the first step of the starter has lost the C.White stir plate option. The second step still has it. Can you please fix this bug for my next brew? Thank you!

    We removed it, because it was inaccurate. It should not be showing up in the second step, and we'll fix that. Sorry for your trouble.

    Is there an explanation as to why it’s inaccurate? I utilized it and it got me consistent results. The Braukaiser always seemed to over-estimate the cell count.

    The reason is because the results don’t change- no matter what you do. A step up? Same results. A bigger starter? Same results. Smaller starter- same results. There is something fundamentally wrong with the calculation, and so we removed it from our list of choices until it is corrected.

    That was not my experience, so it must have been something new. I never changed the gravity, so that was no issue. But if I changed the size of the starter (in liters) using the stirplate equation, I would always get appropriate results. I could adjust the size and use steps to achieve the cell count I wanted without issue. I’m surprised to see it go away so quickly.

    The C. White one was always flawed, from what I can tell. We couldn’t find the correction, so we had to get rid of it. I’m sorry that you’re disappointed with that, but we couldn’t let it stay like that.

    But what about the other White ones? Are not those also wrong?

    No, those seem to be working correctly from what I recall.
