Default True Brew kits in BeerSmith

I am really new to brewing so I have been using the True Brew kits from my LHBS. I am also a geek and love tracking stuff on the computer. I have been trying to learn BeerSmith and have enjoyed using it, but have difficulty in getting the ingredients entered in. They aren't in the BeerSmith database and finding the information for each ingredient online has been hit-and-miss at best. I am planning on moving to all grain shortly, but want to track the info with my True Brews as well. Has anyone found a good solution to this problem?

Nobody has tried using True Brew ingredients in BeerSmith?

What ingredients aren't in BeerSmith? I'm not familiar with True Brew kits. Perhaps if you share the recipe we can help.

Muntons extracts (both light and dark, liquid and poweder) are the main ones. Also, the crystal grains. Even the hops I wasn't 100% on and had to assume that the ones in the database were close.
