Thanks for the input guys. I do like Beersmith but their default numbers seem strange to me most of the time.
Strike water at 161.4F...That doesn't make sense. But for some reason Beersmith keeps on giving me that temp.
The division of the sparge water in 2 different size batches. That is strange too.
I think Beersmith could be improved in many different ways.
