Ingredients by %'age, perhaps revisited...??
« on: September 23, 2011, 05:46:29 AM »
So, if I calculate a recipe by % I basically need OG to calculate GU, then I need theoretical extraction rate for each ingredient basis 100% extraction and my brewhouse efficiency.  I can then caculate pounds pergrain having all the ablve given arguments.  However in beer smith it seems I have to have a total amount of grain weight to be able to ujse this feature.  Am I missing something or am I doing it wrong?

I was hoping to put in my brewhouse efficiency, boil volume, and OG and the % of each ingredient and have beersmith 2 calculate the weights for me.  Does BS2 do this??  If so, how?

Thanks for the replies!!
