Estimated Mash Size greater then mash tun Warning Message
« on: March 22, 2012, 08:16:27 PM »
Beersmith 2.0 no longer reports the possibility of over filling a mash tun as it did in Beersmith 1.4. I scaled a recipe from 5 to 10 gallons and used the same equipment profile and Beersmith 2.0 seems to  give me reasonable mash in and mash out volumes. The problem is the totals exceed the capacity of the mash tun (10 gal igloo cooler) but no warning on the brew sheet.  I exported the recipe to Beersmith 1.4 and the brew sheet says "WARNING: Estimated Mash Size 10.99 gal greater then mash tun volume of 10.00 gal". Is this lack of warning the norm for 2.0 or is there a parameter I need to set to receive warnings?

Hi,
  Its not on the brewsheet (perhaps it should be) but it will show up as a red ball in the mash tab if you are over your mash volume.
