Default iBrewmaster sparge volume help

I am new to using iBrewmaster and I am having trouble finding an easy to calculate the volume of water I need to heat up to batch sparge. Anyone know how to do this? I am probably just missing something easy.
Thanks
Erek

I've just been adding an autocalc sparge step with a temp of 170 for a single batch sparge. Also, iBrewmaster has an article on their knowledge base about batch sparging, I've read it a few times and I'm not sure I understand it, maybe you'll have better luck.

I use I brewmaster and don't use their calculations, I use other programs online, also there is an app called sparge pal that I use sometimes, but I also just estimate base on previous batches

Do you find iBrewMaster is missing several ingredients? I finally dropped the 10$ on it, but must say I am a bit dis appointed, maybe I just don't know how to use it correctly.

So far I haven't used it enough to say if I like it or not. But I only have Internet on my phone and I think it will be useful, but not positive. Haven't had any ingredients I have missed yet.

I've found it has nearly all of the ingredients I need except if I use some obscure hops. Any ingredient can be added easy enuf though
