Default BeerSmith and Mr. Beer

Hey quick question, I am thinking of purchasing BeerSmith but I have a few recipes that I made using Mr. Beer extracts and was wondering if the software already had those extracts in the database or if I would need to input them myself?

Really? Why would you want to replicate Mr. Beer anything? There are a lot of good extract recipes that don't include the term Mr. Beer.

Try searching mr beer clone then create the recipe in beersmith.

The Mr Beer extract kits are not included in the Beersmith software. If you check, I am sure that someone has probably made a custom ingredient file with those extracts.

Yes, you need qbrew with screwybrewer's additional database. http://www.thescrewybrewer.com/2010/...alculator.html

However, I use BS 2.2 and have an equipment profile set up for 2.25 gallon batches (2.11 bottled = 8 L) but that just allows me to do AG/Extract or PM. BeerSmith doesn't have the Mr Beer HME's in it. Qbrew does.
