Hey all,

I want to use beersmith for an applewine and another cider recipe, but I can't seem to find anywhere where they have apple juice listed as an ingredient..I cant formulate my recipes in Beersmith without it, obvisouly.. So is it there somewhere and I am just missing it? Or is it an ingredient you need to manually add?

thanks!

I think you have to add the apple juice in there. Go to Grains and extract button. Up on the tool bar you will see "new grain or extract" and click on that. Fill in all the blanks you know.

I may be wrong, I was just thinking out load.

Unfortunately you will have to enter the juice in pounds not gallons. I figure 8# per gallon is close enough...

Not sure if this what you are asking for sure, but 5 gallons is equal to 640 fluid oz, not 720. HTH...

5g water weighs 667.63 oz
5g juice weighs 667.63 oz * SG of juice
So if the SG of the juice is 1.050, 5g juice would weigh 701 oz.

-a.

There are some great add on packs for ingredients and fruits here:

http://www.beersmith.com/beersmith-1-4-support/

indludes a fruit section that has apples and if you load at 8lbs per gallon the gravity is correct...tested it against an apple juice sample.
