I am trying to enter a cider recipe into Beersmith, but the when I add the cider to the recipe it asks for pounds of cider not gallons. Is there any way to change this? Thanks.

You could just figure on the cider being 8.3 pounds per gallon and do the math yourself. I don't think you can change beersmith to do it.

Use lbs. Add the applejuice as a new grain, and make it's Specific Gravity 1.042 and SRM of 3.

The SG of any malt is simply the expected SG of 1 lb. of that malt in 1 gallon of wort. If you are adding a liquid, choosing lbs is the same as gallons.

Works fine if you increase the attenuation of the yeast to 100%. I should have mentioned that.

Would you mind pointing me to that spreadsheet? I'll take a look around.

Yes, I would like the spreadsheet as well. I'm going to be making first foray into Apflewein. Should be quite useful.

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

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.
