Unable to find grain types in beersmith
« on: April 24, 2015, 05:47:52 AM »
I have to admit I am a little frustrated using beersmith. My first all grain batch, the yeast wasn't listed. Now I am brewing a Belgian Strong Golden Ale from NB and I could only find 1 of the 3 grains used in that recipe. I was unable to find Belgian Pilsner and Belgian Cara 8. Am I missing something here?

thanks,

Brent

I'm not at home, but on the mobile version I'm seeing the Belgian Pilsner (scroll down to Pilsner, Belgian). 

I see on this thread http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=153160 that Cara 8 is akin to Carapils, but the carapils/dextrine in mobile is only an SRM of 2.  That's all the help I've got for now, other than mentioning that you could add it by hand if you have all the pertinent information to plug in.

You can add the Dingemann malts (included are the Cara 8 and their Belgian Pilsner malt) into your grain profiles by clicking on "add-ons" from either the toolbar or 'file' menu. Then click the 'add' button and scroll down until you see the 'Dingemans malts (13 grains).'  Click on this and then click the 'install add-on' button to add these to your grain choices.

Recycle your grains, feed them to a goat!
