I set up my mash profiles using this tutorial. It takes a bit of time up front but makes it a breeze later when designing a recipe...

That's exactly what I needed. I'm sure it'll take a few brews to get it fully tuned in, but that video answered my "right now" questions. Thanks!

The BrewEasy profile covers the equipment and process end of the system; defining the losses and efficiency you will typically get once the system is properly defined.

The split between strike water and sparge is defined in your mash profile.  You want to create a mash profile which has been checked off as a 'full volume BIAB mash' which you can find on the mash profile down towards the bottom.  This informs the software to just add in all the water for the recipe as the mash strike water and back calculates your liquor-to-grist ratio based upon that.

Welcome. First thing to do using Beersmith is create a custom equipment profile. Even if you find your system in the list of provided profiles those are just starting points for creating your own. Everyone's process is different so it is highly likely that no two people using the same equipment will get the same result. If you don't then you are opening yourself up to frustrating brew days wondering why your gravity or your volume was off.

Equipment / BeerSmith settings questions for my Blichmann BrewEasy 10
« Last post by ChrisinEstes on May 10, 2022, 01:11:04 PM »
For those of you with a Blichmann BrewEasy, or a system that works similar in that the total batch volume of water continually recirculates. All of the water goes into the batch at once, so there's no strike water, no sparge water, no mash out water, no water at all at different temps.

I just got my BrewEasy, and am working towards becoming skilled with it. I have several questions after brewing on it 3 times. All three brews worked out, but the brew sessions were less than graceful. Batch 4 will happen this Saturday, so I thought I'd come in and see if I can get help integrating BeerSmith with my system.

I have my equipment set as BrewEasy 10 in BeerSmith, it still separates out the mash water and sparge water. How do you have Beermith configured to work with a BrewEasy type system?

How do you handle the mash in? If you heat all of the water to mash temp, then your mash gets is too hot when you begin to circulate.

I don't even know everything I don't know yet...  :D

Thanks!

Northern Colorado mountains here... This is my 3rd stint at home brewing, and the 2nd using BeerSmith. I'd be lost without it! ;D

Suggestions / Re: Wish List for 2022

I wanted to add two things that would be really useful:

  • Syncing between local and cloud - namely I might want to have a folder in both, but be able to sync changes between them.
  • Improve the search field for ingredients. For example, on Simpson's website you have a "Red Rye Crystal" yet I can't search for "Red Rye", I have to use "Rye, Red" - even a space after "Rye " disqualifies the one I am looking for.

Here's a tip for next time... I'm 64 years old with an artificial hip and arthritis everywhere else so carrying a full fermenter down a flight of stairs is impossible. It finally dawned on my I don't have to carry the entire volume at once. Clean and sanitize a bucket and carry it down a couple gallons at a time.
