Suggestions / CTRL + Backspace
« Last post by Sus4 on May 13, 2022, 11:19:12 AM »
Hi,

I'm new to the forum, but I have been using Beersmith 2 many years and just upgraded to Beersmith 3.

History of the Feature Request:
Brief text editor was a popular programmer's text editor in the 1980s and early 1990s. It was originally released for MS-DOS. Brief Editor had one magical shortcut: CTRL+Backspace. That shortcut deletes the word left to the cursor.

A few people in the early days of the Internet Explorer group used the Brief editor, and they liked the shortcut so much that one of them added it to the autocomplete handler. Therefore, any edit control that uses SHAutoComplete will gain this secret Ctrl+Backspace hotkey.

Now, after several decades, thousands of programs use CTRL+Backspace to remove the word left to the cursor. It has been so called standard a long time now. 

Feature request:
My biggest gripe in the Beersmith 2 has always been the lack of the magical keyboard shortcut, CTRL+Backspace, in the notes editor. I tend to write quite long notes and missing this shortcut is something quite annoying and makes this great program feel like beta version. I really hoped that this would have been fixed/added to Beersmith 3, but sadly this is not the case.

So, would it possible to add this functionality?

Equipment / Adding Anvil Foundry to Equipment?
« Last post by mastfalk on May 13, 2022, 09:52:11 AM »
I am using Beer Smith 2 on my laptop. v 2.3.12 & up to date. I just purchased an Anvil Foundry 10.5 gal. I want to add that to my equipment. I clicked on Add Ons, found it in the equipment and then downloaded it. It now shows up in the installed add on list BUT it is not in my equipment list. How do I get in to my equipment list?

BeerSmith Mobile - Lite and Full / Beersmith 3 not loading ingredients
« Last post by macgywer on May 13, 2022, 06:02:28 AM »
Hello!

I'm using beersmith 3 on my android phone for the last year and love it.
Now I switched from my old android phone (Xiaomi redmi note 5) to new android phone (Redmi 9 T).
Ifter I installed Beersmith the cloud recipes load fine but if i decide to add some ingredients  it just keeps loading and doesn't show any ingredients to choose. Only blank screen and text "Loading Water" or "Loading Hops...".
Is it my new phone or something else?
Can it be fixed?

I set up my mash profiles using this tutorial. It takes a bit of time up front but makes it a breeze later when designing a recipe...

That's exactly what I needed. I'm sure it'll take a few brews to get it fully tuned in, but that video answered my "right now" questions. Thanks!

The BrewEasy profile covers the equipment and process end of the system; defining the losses and efficiency you will typically get once the system is properly defined.

The split between strike water and sparge is defined in your mash profile.  You want to create a mash profile which has been checked off as a 'full volume BIAB mash' which you can find on the mash profile down towards the bottom.  This informs the software to just add in all the water for the recipe as the mash strike water and back calculates your liquor-to-grist ratio based upon that.

Welcome. First thing to do using Beersmith is create a custom equipment profile. Even if you find your system in the list of provided profiles those are just starting points for creating your own. Everyone's process is different so it is highly likely that no two people using the same equipment will get the same result. If you don't then you are opening yourself up to frustrating brew days wondering why your gravity or your volume was off.

Equipment / BeerSmith settings questions for my Blichmann BrewEasy 10
« Last post by ChrisinEstes on May 10, 2022, 01:11:04 PM »
For those of you with a Blichmann BrewEasy, or a system that works similar in that the total batch volume of water continually recirculates. All of the water goes into the batch at once, so there's no strike water, no sparge water, no mash out water, no water at all at different temps.

I just got my BrewEasy, and am working towards becoming skilled with it. I have several questions after brewing on it 3 times. All three brews worked out, but the brew sessions were less than graceful. Batch 4 will happen this Saturday, so I thought I'd come in and see if I can get help integrating BeerSmith with my system.

I have my equipment set as BrewEasy 10 in BeerSmith, it still separates out the mash water and sparge water. How do you have Beermith configured to work with a BrewEasy type system?

How do you handle the mash in? If you heat all of the water to mash temp, then your mash gets is too hot when you begin to circulate.

I don't even know everything I don't know yet...  :D

Thanks!

Northern Colorado mountains here... This is my 3rd stint at home brewing, and the 2nd using BeerSmith. I'd be lost without it! ;D
