Scaling down a 5gal all grain to 3 gal BIAB
« on: January 09, 2013, 08:43:55 PM »
I've done a fair share of extract brews but never tried a BIAB. I'd like to but when I try to scale down a Northern Brewer recipe for Patersbier (a Belgian ale) in BeerSmith, the recipe scales down the water but does not scale down the amounts for the ingredients. I selected 5gal mini BAIB as the equipment profile. Also selected BIAB light for the mash. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any help!

I already matched the OG to the NB recipe and still no adjustment in ingredient amounts...

Sorry, you r correct, I went in and adjusted the OG after starting fresh and the adjustments were made. Maybe just me but software is quite sluggish on my Mac.  Appreciate the help!
