Hi Guys,

Love the spreadsheet, Just a quick question.

 

I think i Know the answer from searching this thread, but just want to double check.

 

If my Hop boil is less than 8 litres, I should use the HCF but if its 8 litres or more, I should leave it as NO.

Correct?

There is very little data for boiling hops with small volumes hence the HCF. I would not use it with an 8 litre boil volume but suggest you try and increase your boil volume to 10 litres which can easily be done in say a BigW 19 litre pot.

No worries,

Well at the moment i'm only boiling with 4 litres. So I'll use the HCF for now.

 

Thanks Ian
