Hop Utilization: Tinseth versus Daniels
« on: April 06, 2014, 12:25:03 PM »
I am a longtime ProMash user who has just brewed a few batches with BeerSmith 2. Using almost exactly the same brewing methods and hops as in previous ProMash recipes, I've found that the beers I am making with the Tinseth default in BeerSmith are coming out much more hoppy than their ProMash predecessors, which utilized the Generic (Daniels) calculation method in ProMash. Of course, moving forward I can always adjust the IBUs down, but I would prefer to use the Daniels calculation that always proved to work so well for me. Does anyone have any idea as to whether the Daniels formula might be introduced as an option in BeerSmith. Or, failing that, if Tinseth, Rager, or Garetz comes closest to Daniels, all other factors being equal?
