IBU seems off on BeerSmith
« on: October 31, 2016, 09:47:54 PM »
I copied a recipe directly from a recipe sheet provided with a kit I got a while ago from Morebeer!, wanted t save it on the application. Pretty much everything comes up the same as Morebeer's spec sheet except the IBU measurement. Morebeer states the IBU is supposed to come out between 42 - 46, but Beersmith shows an estimate of 25.7... that's a pretty big discrepancy. I already adjusted the alpha % and the Hop Storage Index % to match Morebeer's. What could possibly be causing such a discrepancy? Is Beersmith just plain wrong?  :-\

Under Tools/Option/Bitterness, make sure you are using the same bitterness formula. 

Is this a Jamil recipe?  I think he uses Rager.
