    Agreed

    FWIW
    I have learned that I generally don't go over 30% Columbus for late/dry hop.
    I tried a smash beer with it once. It went in the drain, tasted like a green onion pale ale.
    Luckily it was pilot.

    If you want to save yourself some time and effort, I actually recommend having your malt supplier mill your grain on the small scale.

    500ml vs 16.9 oz

    Hey Ricky.

    Check the TTB guidelines, but I'm pretty sure that all of the liquid amount designations have to be in pint/oz and can't be in ML (I could be wrong though)
