Title: Adding of new item
Post by: merhlyn on June 29, 2015, 12:31:38 PM
Hi,

Can someone point out where I could find instructions on entering a new item. I have a Cherry concentrate that I have added as a misc item. However, I would like to add this as well as the Brix/SP of this item and the option I am using does not allow that to be added.

Thanks in advance everyone.

Michael

If something contributes to fermentation, then it has to be entered as a "grain." This includes all fruits, sugars, extracts and other source of fermentable material.

To make it calculate correctly, you have to break it down to the gravity contribution of 1 lb in 1 gallon of water. For dry sugars, this is 1.046 or 100% Yield in the ingredient database.

Hi BrewFun,

That was what I needed.

Thanks much.
