Just finished a good brew day, brewing an English Bitter or maybe it s a pale. Did a starter seemed to go well. But my picnic tap on my keg snapped so had to use a pair of plyers to pour. Nice n foamy :D

Think you'll find the others will be like the grainfather app if they are set up correctly.

Hi everyone, just wondering why the likes of BS, Brewfather ect specify a lower strike water volume than the sparge volume? The only one that does not is the Grainfather app.
