Title: Where is Steeping Mentioned???
Post by: morrissey1977 on April 22, 2009, 06:13:30 AM
I just started working with Beer Smith and I am working on a partial mash. I am trying to figure out how to include grain steeping times and temp...how is this done so that it influences my recipe?

Thanks

In Recipe View, the 2nd field is Type.  You should select Extract.  This way, grains you put in the recipe will appear with a red exclamation point if they require mashing.  If no red !!,  then grain is good for steeping.  Typical steeping procedure is 30 minutes @ 155F to 160F, remove, add DME, take to a boil.  You could record your steeping process in Taste or Notes.
