[Wrf-users] WRF WPP: postprocessing graupel?

I am trying to use the WPP to interpolate all of my hydrometeor fields 
to pressure levels.
I have accomplished this with rain water, cloud water, cloud ice, and 
snow, but cannot find a way to do it with graupel.
QGRAUP is in my wrfouts, but I don't see any sort of option for it in 
the wrf_cntrl.parm file, and even in the POSTDATA.f file, I only see an 
option for:

       DATA IFILV(255),AVBL(255),IQ(255),IS(255)
&                      /1,'GRAUPEL ON S SFCS   ',179,107/

Even though I don't know exactly if the S SFCS would be helpful in 
getting to P surfaces, when I try to place that in my wrf_cntrl.parm 
file it doesn't seem to do anything upon running WPP anyway.

Is there a way to add this variable to my interpolated output?

Thank you!
