Default Beersmith and water volumes

Is there an option in Beersmeeth where I can enter my grain bill, water water/grain ratio I want, then it spits out how much water I need to mash with, how much runnings I'll get, then how much I need to batch sparge with? I can't seem to find it.

Yes, there are two places to add the values first. When you look at the main screen, click on "equipment" that is listed on the left. Then fill in those blanks that ask you your evaporation rate, you MLT size, etc. After you do that, go into "mash profiles" and select the one you will be using. You can check if you want sparges that are equal, etc.

once you've done these things, click on preview brewsheet at the top of the page. it will then tell you how much total water you need, as well as each individual sparge volume and temperature. i usually print my brewsheet out on brewday to keep close by. easier than running to the computer to check on hop additions, etc

As far as mash profiles goes, I don't see double batch sparge?

I have too so I just changed mine to a single sparge. I kept getting an Error about heat and needing more water. After I changed to a single, the error went away.

Beersmith is projecting a much higher OG than the recipe calls for so obviously I need to tweak something.

Click the option sparge with equal volumes. You may have to adjust the % of mash tun volume to a lower figure for the brewsheet to display what you want.

The way I see it, the default is a single sparge. If you want 2, you have to split the sparge water amount....I do not see what 'spaarge using equal sizebatches' in 'Details' does.

I have set my equipment, a keggle MLT, use 100% volume, want mashout and 2 sparges...

I only ever see 'Sparge Round 1' in the brew sheet.

WTF?

lower the % of mash tun volume to say 50%. then check the brew sheet. Then slowly raise the % until the sparges equal.

Really? That's what it takes? What bull ****.

I think I should have bought Pro Mash...

Edit: 50% gave me 9 sparges, at 70%, I got 2.

What a bunch of crap.
