Default BeerAlchemy & Carapils

Hey folks,
I'm using BeerAlchemy to put my recipes together, but it doesn't have carapils as a standard ingredient.

Does anybody who is familiar with BeerAlchemy know of a substitute in the list of possible ingredients? Or how to add a custom ingredient?

I don't know the software, but carapils, cara-foam and dextrine are pretty much the same...

I used BeerAlchemy and I have carapils in my ingredient database. It is listed as "US Carapils Malt". If you don't have it, just add it with the following stats: Color 1.3 SRM; Extract 73%; Moisture 5.5%.
