Olan, looks like an issue. My post was cut off for some reason.

I'll just copy my post in here, compare the numbers, the differences in extract are minor:

You can see that the Floor Malted has a slightly lower extract potential than the two non-floor malted varieties, this is because the Hartong Index (Extract Modification) is slightly lower than the non-floor malted. However the Kolbach Index (Protein Modification) is higher than the non-floor malted pilsner so it has more soluble proteins to help it survive a decoction mash without losing too much protein to maillard reactions. However all of these differences are minor, so all of these malts are perfectly suitable for infusion mashing.

Huh.  I managed to avoid Chino killing things, but Eric has managed.  

Thanks, though.  I'll check the logs and add more logic.
