Title: Designing a new recipe- problem with ABV, basically no fermentation
Post by: bz22419 on December 16, 2020, 09:17:47 AM
I am designing a Czech pilsener and for some reason Beersmith is showing me ABV =0.4% (OG=1.055, FG=1.046). Using Wyeast  2278 yeast with 2 liters of starter.  Fermantables are 4.9 kg (pilsener+ carafoam). BIAB pilsener mash profile. Using distilled water with added salts to match Pilsen water. I varied yeast type, amount of yeast, mash profiles-to no avail. Using three stage lager fermentation profile (different fermentation profiles did not change. This is the first time in about 15 recipes with Beersmith that I have designed and brewed.

Anyone have experienced this issue? If so what is the issue?

Not sure given the information.  If you can export the recipe as a .bsmx file and post it here, we can see how the values are being calculated.  you can export the recipe by highlighting the recipe in the folder (not the open recipe), and clicking on 'file' > 'export selected' >  and give it a file name.  You can then attach the file by using the '+ attachments and other options' under the post reply dialog box.
