Default How to convert AA Uunits to ounces in BYO magazine recipes?

There are always several recipes in the BYO magazine but they almost always list an AA, or AAU unit for the hops. I know this isn't the alpha acid percentage. How do you convert this AAU amount to ounces so I can brew it?

thanks

Default

Multiply the AA% of the hops times an amount and you get the BYO units (called Home Brew Units or HBUs by Charlie P.)

Fer instance...If a recipe calls for 15 units of Galena. You could use 2.5 ozs @ 6%AA or 3 ozs. of 5% AA.

Hope that helps...
