I recently bought a BrewZilla 35L system that I want to start doing 4 gallon batches in.  I am currently using a 10gal converted water cooler for mashing/sparging. I set up an Equipment Profile for the new system.  If I take one of my old 5 gal recipes and apply the new profile, Beersmith changes the water quantities but leaves the grain and hop quantities.  So my gravity and bitterness are way high.  I am doing something wrong?

Are you using the "scale recipe" option in the toolbar or are you just changing the equipment profile in the recipe?  To keep the same targets, you need to use the 'scale recipe' function and check the box for 'match original gravity, color and bitterness'.

Hey, I just got a brewzilla 35, wondering where to find the equipment profile?
There's only 65L in the system.
