Default Math.

Any one care to say if my math is right?

Mash ratio
1.33 qt/lb
1.25 L/lb
2.75 L/kg

Have I got it right? (I know it's variable, it the convertion I'm trying to figure)

What about this?
Absorbtion Rate
0.1 g / lb
0.38 l/lbs
0.83 l/kg

Thanks

Guess not. Don't blame you, have a homebrew instead.

Gotta run, my rabbit smells like it's done.

Thanks, straight conversions are easy; it's the ratios and volume/weight thing that I find tricky

I find all math tricky. You should have seen me trying to figure out how much brewing water I needed before I had promash.

Thanks, yes it's US to metric.
All the best (or most) of the recipes seem to come from over the pond.
