Fawcett Crystal Rye
« on: April 27, 2012, 07:52:09 AM »
I'm thinking of using this ingredient for my next beer, but I don't have any of the specs aside from the color.  I've added the Thomas Fawcett add-on pack, but it doesn't seem to be included.  If nothing else, I plan to copy the other values from the Pale Rye malt and just set the color to 75 and diastatic power to 0.  I assume that there's some other setting I should tweak since the Crystal version must be less fermentable.  Which setting in BeerSmith is used to adjust a grain's fermentability?  If there isn't one (none seem obvious to me) how does the software anticipate FG if it sees base malt and crystal as having the same level of fermentability?

Thanks,

Anthony
