Steep/Mashing time for Extract Recipe
« on: March 03, 2016, 12:08:23 PM »
I am new to Beersmith but I have been making beer now for about 18 months. I imported a recipe that I have made before, White House Honey Porter.  This recipe calls for a steep/mashing time of 45 minutes. Yet it appears that the program defaults to 30 minutes for steeping if the recipe is a Extract type. How does one get the correct steeping time for a extract recipe? I have asked the question twice on the contact page but no answer. I sometimes remake a recipe from Brewers Best which has a steep/mash time of 20 minutes yet I do no see hoe to get that set. Is the program broken? Am I doing something wrong?

On the Timer Page, you should be able to change the steep time under mash/steeper. It's at the bottom of that section before the boil timer.
