Making cider in beersmith
 
Has anyone come up with a way to put cider recipes into beer smith. I have searched there support site and forum but have not found anything. (aside from people asking how its done with no good response.) I donít mind doing low tech in my log book but I would like to know how things will change it before hand.

I would also like to know, Ive been trying to work with beersmith for a few weeks, and havent found a good way to enter apple juice concentrate as an ingredient.

i created a new grain/malt call apple juice and set the dry yield fine grain to 100%. I enter the number of gallons where beersmith has pounds and the OG comes really close.

BeerSmith does have Common Cider and Apfelwein categories to use when creating recipes.

I created an ingredient view for each cider or juice that I've used. Just take an SG reading of the unfermented juice and enter it in the appropriate field. I can't remember the details as I don't have BeerSmith in front of me at work, but it only took me a few minutes to figure it out.

Once you have the data for your juice or cider saved, just enter it into your recipe as usual.

There are some great add on packs for ingredients and fruits here:

indludes a fruit section that has apples and if you load at 8lbs per gallon the gravity is correct...tested it against an apple juice sample.
