Anyone have a good formula to calculate hop utilization of pellets instead of whole hops. I use Glen Tinseths forumala to get me close but I haven't found one I trust to is specifcially for pellets. I'm assuming you get a little higher utilization from them.

you do get better utilization... about 15%.

So, for every ounce of whole hops, use 0.85 oz of pellets.
