no change in IBU
« on: December 30, 2016, 04:08:23 PM »
So I just purchased Beersmith, putting in my first recipe and the IBU of the beer is not changing with the addition of hops.  I am making a 6 pack batch/starter for a larger beer so I am only boiling for 15 minutes.  I have tried to change it to a 60min boil and for 60min each with no change.  Any Ideas?
Thanks and Cheers

Not without a better description of what you are doing or a copy of the .bsmx file to see and play around with the settings to see what is going on.

I'm wondering if the Hops Utilization somehow got changed to zero.  Go to the Equipment Profile you used for the recipe and check the Hop Utilization.  I believe it should be set to 100%.

Hope this helps.
