BeerSmith 3 Support / Re: BeerSmith3 on Ubuntu 22.04 (error and fix)

I'm running Pop! OS (basically Ubuntu) v.22.04 and was having the same issue with BS3 clicking the icon, I had the 'I'm thinking about it' mouse pointer, then *nothing*.

Trying to open BS3 in the terminal, I got:

"beersmith3: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

so following some guidance i found here (, I DLed the file "libssl1.1_1.1.1f-1ubuntu2.16_amd64.deb" from here:;O=D

and installed it.

Now BS3 opens fine for me

BeerSmith 3 Support / Issue with "bottle/kegg Date"
« Last post by craboune on August 07, 2022, 09:07:01 AM »
hi everybody,  :D

I have an issue with the date of bottled and I hope you can help me :)

When I add to the date of brewing session : the number of day of primary time + secondary time + tertiary time ... it doesnt match to the the bottle/kegg time. (BS v3.2.7, W10)

I attached 2 screens for example where I changed the number of days for cold crash (tertiary time) => the bottle date doesnt change  :-[

Thank for your help  ;)

I'm not sure how you like your recipe ingredients ordered but have you tried clicking the top of each column? The Amt tab at the top of the first column will order things from most to least or vise versa.

Can you post up a few screen shots showing how the ingredients are ordered in your recipe?  Everything usually orders based upon addition time in the brew schedule for me. 
BeerSmith 3 Support / Need manual control of ingredient sort order
« Last post by JCDrumKing on August 06, 2022, 08:53:49 AM »
I've been using Beersmith for 7 years and I find the inability to control the order of recipe items very frustrating.  It's one of a couple things that have me considering looking for different brewing software, unfortunately.  I'd rather stay with Beersmith, but with each new recipe I get a little closer to looking elsewhere.

The initial auto-grouping when adding an item has its value, but there needs to be a way to manually move an item up or down in the list.  I am tweaking a recipe right now where Beersmith has intermingled my mineral additions and grains, ordered my hops in a way I don't want, placed my whirlfloc and yeast nutrient additions in odd places, etc.

The only way I have ever gotten everything where I wanted was to recreate the recipe from scratch, being super careful to add every ingredient in the desired order.  But add another ingredient after the fact and the problem is back.  Dorking around with step types, quantities, or time durations to change the order works on occasion, but those changes are unwanted.

Any progress in this area would make this longtime Beersmith user (and many others I'm sure) very happy :-)

BeerSmith absorption uses fixed units of fluid ounces per ounce of grain.  So, in your case:

Volume loss = 2.2 gal - 2.0 gal = 0.2 gal * 128 flu oz/gal = 25.6 fluid ounces

Grain weight = 3.3 lbs * 16 oz/lb = 52.8 ounces

Absorption = 25.6 fluid ounces / 52.8 ounces = 0.4848 fl oz/oz of grain

Hope this helps with the conversion broken down.
All Grain/Advanced / Fruit Additions and ABV
« Last post by atlref on August 04, 2022, 01:04:06 PM »
I am making a strawberry kettle sour. I will be adding the strawberries in the secondary as I do with all my fruit additions. My question is that when added as secondary addition there is no change to gravity (OG or FG) in the Session Section and therefore no change in ABV. Of course I expect the final gravity will be lower than what is stated in the recipe as the sugar from the fruit will ferment out. If I add the strawberry as a boil addition it does correctly adjust the OG/FG/ABV.  To see where I will finish up should I just add the fruit as a boil addition even though I will actually be adding it to the secondary?
