Okay, sorry for the delay, I'm really not ignoring anyone, it has just been
a really nasty little week on the network here.  

Let me sit down and review this tonight, and I'll see what I can come up
with to fix the problem.  It just sounds like a simple conversion problem.

What type of grain are you using?  Wheat? 2-row English Pale, 2-row
American Pale, or 6-row American Pale?  The Maltsters brand name would be
nice just for my notes, and would probably be inconsequential.

I'll post back as soon as I reread your message and review a couple things  :)
