Does anyone know if Brite tank will be added to the software as a carbonation option.

I'll second that request. Something with whetting pressure and head pressure accounted for.

My workaround is to simply add those two values to the head pressure needed according to carbonation charts. In BeerSmith I've created a brite tank profile and adjusted the beer temperature until it shows the correct gauge setting. My brite tank temperature is always the same, so I can ignore the way off temperature in the recipe (around 57o to 72oF). This has been accurate for me from 1.75 vol up to 3 vol.

I certainly wish it were more convenient and straightforward. With more and more homebrewers using pressure capable fermentors, it's certainly becoming relevant.
