Hey guys. Several of you pointed out some errors. I believe I have fixed them, although some of them I couldn't reproduce, so I don't know for sure. Anyway, just download it again and everything should be fine. If not, PM me.

I am a few discrepancies between Brewtarget and Beer Calculus. Not sure which one is correct. I am preparing for a German Pils

Pilsner (2 Row) Ger 11 lbs
Munich Malt - 20L 8 oz

Target boil 6.394 gal Beertarget; 6.4 gal Beer Calculus

BJCP BT BC
O.G. 1.044-1.050 1.055 1.045
F.G. 1.007-1.011 1.014 1.011
ABV

You don't say what your batch size is. However, if your efficiency is 70% and I assume the batch size is 6.4 gal, and I ignore the amount of crystal malt, the points should be:

(11 * 46 * 0.81)/6.4 * 0.70 = 45 points (i.e. OG = 1.045)

Which is what you're expecting I believe. If I'm right, I think you may have confused batch size and boil size. Perhaps you wanted the batch size to be 6.4 gal instead? Batch size is how much you want to end up in the fermenter. Boil size is how much wort is in the kettle at the start of the boil. To move the calculated batch size up or down, you must edit the boil off rate in the equipment record you have associated with the recipe.

Hope this helps.

Promash doesn't use BeerXML, but there is a converter that will translate Promash recipes to BeerXML which Brewtarget can use. I haven't used this tool, so tell me how or if it works if you don't mind.

I'm just getting back into extract homebrewing after about a 12 year absence and am looking for some good software. I ran across Brewtarget and it looks nice!

I bought an ingredient kit from "Brewer's Best" to get started and thought I'd put all of it into the software. One ingredient that came with the kit that I can't find in Brewtarget is maltodextrin. Am I just missing it, or is it not there? Any idea how to add it and what information I would need to add it?

Hey man. You can create a "fermentable" ingredient to be Maltodextrin like this:

1) View->Fermentables
2) Click New
3) Enter "Maltodextrin"
4) Change the type to "sugar" (yes, I know it's not really a sugar)
5) Change the yield to 87. The reason is 1 lb in 1 US gal of maltodextrin gives 40 points and 40/46 * 100 = 87.
6) Click OK.

The only suggestion I have would be that it would be cool if you could double click to add the grain/hop to the recipe.
Good suggestion. Keep them coming.

when I was editing my system information, I got it all in and unthinkingly hit enter.

the default on the edit system page is to delete on an enter key stroke apparently.



User error, for sure... but that might be good to remove the default there.
