Does anyone know if TH's EzWaterCalculator spread sheet's dilution function dilutes the mash and the sparge water?
For instance if you wanted dilute just the mash, add 50% distilled and 50% your water you could just put in the mash volume and figure that part out. But what if you want to add your original water for the sparge water. Does the dilution of 50% consider the sparge water 1/2 distilled and 1/2 your water or all your water? Does the dilution figure into both the sparge and the mash water?
I usually uncheck the sparge water salt additions and it is nice because w/out a dilution I can see the effect of the salts to the mash and then to the sparge + the mash and it should be accurate. If I diluted just my mash water and sparged with my normal water would those values be accurate? Only if the sparge water was considered as Not diluted.
Thanks for any help!
