Equipment / Re: Building a 1BBL electric system
« Last post by Brewmanmachinery on May 17, 2022, 02:38:25 AM »
Hi,

Maybe you can consider stove heating? As 5500w is not enough for 1bbl brewing tank heating.
Normally we suggest 10KW for heating.

BeerSmith 3 Support / Re: Yeast Starter calculation in BS3
« Last post by Oginme on May 16, 2022, 06:29:38 PM »
Where does the %Viability data come from? And how can I set my desired pitch rate? I'm seeing big differences in viability across a variety of calculators. For a recently manufactured PP of WLP001 I'm seeing values ranging from 71% to 96% (BS3). Not knowing the pitch rate used in BS3 really leaves me wondering how accurate it is.

The accuracy of the model is highly dependent upon the age of the yeast package, the conditions under which it was stored, actual viable yeast at packaging, yeast strain, etc.  It is never perfect, but designed to get you in the ballpark.  There is a pretty wide range of cell counts which the yeast can and will perform consistently and that is highly strain dependent as well. 

Then you get into the models which have mostly been developed decades ago and do not take into account the improvements which have been made in yeast health, packaging integrity, and overall vitality of the yeast over the past number of years. The rate of decrease in viable cells over the age of the yeast package tends to be extremely conservative in the estimate of % viability, so the actual percentage of viable cells will tend to be greater than the models predict.

This is one reason that some of the yeast companies have switched from printing the manufacture date to printing the best-by date on the packages.  I use yeast packages as a means of calibration on my cell counting technique and personally, I have never had a Wyeast package check in at less than 100 billion active cells even at 4 to 6 months old.  Most clock in at a consistent count of 108 billion to 112 billion cells total (counting both dead and live cells).  This correlates fairly well with the information I was able to squeeze out of the Wyeast people at HBC back in 2019.

I cannot comment too much on White Labs other than to say the two tubes I tested back a number of years ago were just a bit over the 100 billion total cells. Their new packaging probably negates anything tested in the prior packaging in terms of viability and total cell counts.

Options->Yeast Starter has pitch rates, viability and aging settings. You need to enter the yeast packaging date and the brew date for the viability calculation. BeerSmith3 assumes the yeast starter is made on the brew date.

It was a problem in the demo version. After I pulled out of beta testing the app on play store and reinstalled normall app all works fine.

BeerSmith Mobile - Lite and Full / New iPhone and Lost Recipes
« Last post by jverduin on May 13, 2022, 08:14:42 PM »
Hi. I have changed iPhones several times in the past but not had this issue. In my latest upgrade, after upgrading iPhones, I have lost about 2 years of recipes. I am not 100% certain, but this latest time, I used the phone-to-phone method of upgrading via Apple's tools. I believe all past upgrades have been from backup to recovery. Is there any hope for finding the recipes now that the original phone has been wiped?

Starting from scratch go to Add Ons > In the window that pops up select Equipment > Highlight the profile(s) you wish to add > Click the Install arrow and then OK and close the Add Ons window.

Now when you add a new recipe just click the Equipment drop down menu the newly added profile(s) will be there for you to select. Also take note: All recipes in Beersmith are independent and will not display new items automatically. If you want to use the new profile in recipes you have previously saved you will have to go to the drop down menu and select it.

Suggestions / CTRL + Backspace
« Last post by Sus4 on May 13, 2022, 11:19:12 AM »
Hi,

I'm new to the forum, but I have been using Beersmith 2 many years and just upgraded to Beersmith 3.

History of the Feature Request:
Brief text editor was a popular programmer's text editor in the 1980s and early 1990s. It was originally released for MS-DOS. Brief Editor had one magical shortcut: CTRL+Backspace. That shortcut deletes the word left to the cursor.

A few people in the early days of the Internet Explorer group used the Brief editor, and they liked the shortcut so much that one of them added it to the autocomplete handler. Therefore, any edit control that uses SHAutoComplete will gain this secret Ctrl+Backspace hotkey.

Now, after several decades, thousands of programs use CTRL+Backspace to remove the word left to the cursor. It has been so called standard a long time now. 

Feature request:
My biggest gripe in the Beersmith 2 has always been the lack of the magical keyboard shortcut, CTRL+Backspace, in the notes editor. I tend to write quite long notes and missing this shortcut is something quite annoying and makes this great program feel like beta version. I really hoped that this would have been fixed/added to Beersmith 3, but sadly this is not the case.

So, would it possible to add this functionality?

Equipment / Adding Anvil Foundry to Equipment?
« Last post by mastfalk on May 13, 2022, 09:52:11 AM »
I am using Beer Smith 2 on my laptop. v 2.3.12 & up to date. I just purchased an Anvil Foundry 10.5 gal. I want to add that to my equipment. I clicked on Add Ons, found it in the equipment and then downloaded it. It now shows up in the installed add on list BUT it is not in my equipment list. How do I get in to my equipment list?

BeerSmith Mobile - Lite and Full / Beersmith 3 not loading ingredients
« Last post by macgywer on May 13, 2022, 06:02:28 AM »
Hello!

I'm using beersmith 3 on my android phone for the last year and love it.
Now I switched from my old android phone (Xiaomi redmi note 5) to new android phone (Redmi 9 T).
Ifter I installed Beersmith the cloud recipes load fine but if i decide to add some ingredients  it just keeps loading and doesn't show any ingredients to choose. Only blank screen and text "Loading Water" or "Loading Hops...".
Is it my new phone or something else?
Can it be fixed?
