Using Beer Smith with percentages...
« on: March 24, 2011, 02:33:07 PM »
Is there a way to enter a recipe using an OG and the percentages of a grain bill.  For example can I enter Starting Gravity 1.065 and Grain Bill 85% Pale, 10% Wheat, 2.5% Dark Crystal, 2.5% Brown Sugar and also enter a brewhouse efficiency and have it tell how many pounds of each ingredient you need.

If there is a way to do this it would be great.

Thanks!!

Richie

Currently the only way to do it is to enter your weights as percentages and then use the adjust adjust OG button to scale everything back.

Version 2.0 of BeerSmith has a tool specifically to do this from the recipe designer - enter the percentages and it will adjust the weights for you.
