Formulating a recipe by % only

I have a lot of recipes that use only % of grain
i.e. 80% 2 row
    17% crystal 20
      2% chocolate
      1 % wheat

Is there a way to do this with BeerSmith?

Not directly, but the quick workaround is to do something like build the recipe with 8.0 lbs 2-row, 1.7 lbs crystal, 0.2 lbs chocolate and 0.1 lb wheat (i.e. take each and make it the percent/10) and then use the "adjust gravity" function to adjust the recipe to have the target final gravity.  This will preserve the percentages.

Cheers,
Brad
