I was just wondering how everyone calculates the % of specialty grains used when extract brewing.
In case I’m not clear what I mean is this.
In my last recipe I used Carafara III and it was recommend at no more then 15% of the total grain bill. Now since I’m using extract for the majority of my “grains” how do you calculate that 15%? I have to pick up beersmith or another program but I did some funky math with Recipator online and came out with 1lb as 15% and scaled it down to 8oz for the recipe.
Is there a way to do it easier?
