Default Beersmith Question

I have two recipies that are exactly the same except for the boil time. One is at 60 minutes and one is at 90. They both give me the same estimated preboil volume. It is the same if I have the the calc boil box checked or unchecked. What am I missing here? Thanks

You need to check calculate boil volume check box on the design tab

Right - there is an option to calculate boil off volume as a fixed amount or as an hourly amount. Yours sounds like it's set at the fixed amount.

If you're looking at the recipe and there is the drop-down field to select the equipment there is a button next to it to bring up the equipment profile. Towards the bottom left of that sub-window are the data points for boil-off volume. Note that if you change it through this method it will ONLY change it for this single recipe. You need to change it in the equipment profile for it to impact it as you add recipes.
