Add a Grain to the database
« on: August 16, 2009, 12:37:40 PM »
How do I go about adding a grain to the database?  In this particular case, I want to add Carastan 30/37.   I know it's potential (1.034) and it's SRM (30) but I have not been able to find any other of the info that is normally listed in the database.

Thanks!

I figured out how to add a grain to the database..woo-hoo! However does someone know where I can get some info on this Carastan 30/37?  I know the Potential and the SRM but the database has entries for:

Dry Yield Fine Grain
Coarse/Fine Diff
Moisture
Diastatic Power

I can't find these anywhere and I'd like to update BeerSmith.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

You would normally find this info from the maltster.  Carastan30/37 is pretty much identical to all the caramel 30 or caramel 40s out there so I would just use the values for those.
