Hello All,

Say I am doing a 6 gallon boil. Do I set the avg gallons in the hops section to 6? Thank you. Would batch size under malts remain 5 if thats my final goal?

Leave your batch size for the malts at 5 gallons so that it can calculate the gravity and color properly.

For the hops, you are probably ok to put 5 or 6 for the volume. From what I have seen in other brewing software, hops utilization doesn't get affected by gravity until you get up around 1.06.

If you are boiling 6 down to 5, just put in 5.5 as the average gallons.
