    one grapefruit and that was plenty for a 5 gallon batch. I added my zest with 10 minutes
    remaining and I j...

    I love brewtarget, but one thing I found is that I exported my recipes from version 1.2.4 and
    imported them into version 2 and my calculations have changed. One of my recipes in version
    1.2.4 had a ca...
