Posted in thread: My double IPA came up short on gravity. What to do? on 10-13-2013 at 10:54 PM
I'd let it ride.1) Six points short of your gravity isn't as big a deal up around 1.080 as it
is at 1.040.2) They say the tongue can't taste more than about 100 IBU's.3) Based on the
numbers you've gi...
Posted in thread: small batch yeast quandary. on 09-08-2013 at 10:42 PM
Instead of subbing with US-05, I'd sub with S-04. It'll be much closer to Wyeast 1968. And
doing a 1-gallon batch, you can easily use a partial packet of the dry yeast and save the rest
for later.I ha...

I don't have the program in front of me, but I think it should be under the File menu.
Posted in thread: Transferring BS files to network drive on 09-02-2013 at 10:41 PM
Is it as simple as cut&paste from My Documents folder to a folder on the network drive? And
should I overwrite my program files on the laptop with the files from my PC. Here's what I'd
like to do. Wor...
Posted in thread: OG is too high from loss of water in boil on 06-09-2013 at 08:00 PM
My vote is to leave it as is:1. Even if you're a full quart short of a gallon, adding another
quart of water will only bring you down to 1.129.2. Seems to me that adding top off water after
Posted in thread: Single infusion mash on 05-29-2013 at 10:33 PM
Think of a single infusion mash as steeping your grains at a very specific temperature for a
determined length of time (usually an hour). That is, when steeping grains with an extract
recipe, you want...
Posted in thread: Gravity Unit question on 05-27-2013 at 04:58 PM
The math is Vol1 x SG1 = Vol2 x SG2. In this case, 2.5 x 68 = 3 x SG2. The gravity after you
add half a gallon will be about 1.057.

The freezer is the best place to store both hops and your US-05. Just pull them out when you
start brewing, and you'll be good to go.
Posted in thread: Setting up Beersmith for one gaalon extract and partial mash brewing on 04-13-2013 at 04:39 PM
I'm finding it hard to calculate my losses from boil off and trub loss. I use a two gallon pot
for one gallon full boils so top off isn't an issue. I've been estimating each factor and
inserting it in...

Do I need to set up different profiles for Extract and Partial Mash?Does anyone use the scaling
feature? I would LOVE to use this as most of the beer I want to make comes from five gallon
