I read about it in the help file, but I didn't get much wiser. But, if i set the grain weight basis to 6 (kgs), Then the sparge volume is not far off from what we used, but then it removes 1.25 litres of water for the mash. I don't get this. Is this a number i should change then? I still don't understand what it does.

2,5 litres pr kg grain should still be 2,5 liters pr kg grain.. im confused.
