Also while on the topic of MLT, for the "Mash Tun Volume", I'm assuming this is the exact amount that your MLT can hold?* So even though my MLT is a 15.5 gal budweiser keg that is setup for bottom draining, I should enter 14 gal, since this is the amount of water it can hold without over flowing.
I can get close to 16 gallons in my keggle, if memory serves correctly. I'd carefully calibrate a one-gallon pitcher and then find out for sure just how much it can hold. But sure, you could always go on the safe side and just plug in 14 gallons.

I've already done that, just making sure that "Mash Tun Volume" is the actual amount of water the MLT can hold. So in my case 14 gal.
