Default Briess 2-Row among other things

Ok, this is going to sound really stupid, but here goes anyway:

What is Briess? Is it a brand, is it a particular grain?

The reason I ask is because I am getting ready to boil a batch today and I wanted to to put all of my information in The Beer Recipator.

Unfortunately, there is no Briess option when I select the grains.


Anyway, I am going for a High Gravity IPA with the following ingredients:

7lbs Plain Extra Light DME (Muntons)
2lbs Briess 2 Row
1lb Briess Caramel LoV 10
2 OZ. Warrior (15.4%)
2 OZ. Magnum (13.6%)
1 OZ. Centennial (9.6%) (Plug for Dry Hop)
Safale US-05 Yeast
Whirlfloc


I would like to be able to put all of those ingredients in a program so that I could have some #'s to work with, but some of those ingredients just aren't listed on the Recipator. What should I do?

Also, when and how much of the Whirlfloc to use???


Thanks Everyone!

Briess is a brand name. It's a malting company in Wisconsin. There are a few different companies, and most are very similiar. In a PM recipe, you shouldn't be able to discern any difference at all. You can just buy some 2-row and crystal 10L (also known as caramel) malt.

Whirlfloc is one tablet added to the boil with 15 minutes left.

Great!

I already have the ingredients, I just wasn't sure what they were to be called in the program.
