Doing my first AG today! Yay!

Im trying to put in the ingredients to beer smith and I'm not sure what the barley that I am using is labeled under. I am using Rahr 2-row pale and Belgian Caramel Pils. Anyone know what these are labeled under in the ingredients screen?

Here's what I have for rahr 2-row. I may have input it myself. Check values carefully before using.

Name: Pale Malt, 2-Row
Type: Grain
Origin: Rahr Malting

Yield: 69.57 %
Potential: 1.032
Color: 1.9 SRM
Max in Batch: 100.00 %
Moisture: 4.10 %
Protein: 11.70 %
Coarse Fine Difference: 1.50 %
Diastatic Power: 120.0 %

Recommend Mash: TRUE
Inventory: 0.0 oz
Notes: Rahr Premium 2-Row pale Malt

Here it is in BeerXML.
  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>

  <NAME>Pale Malt, 2-Row</NAME> 
  <ORIGIN>Rahr Malting</ORIGIN> 
  <NOTES>Rahr Premium 2-Row pale Malt</NOTES> 
As for the Belgian Caramel Pils, beats me. You could make a new ingredient based on the Belgian Pils, tweak the SRM to whatever the grain analysis says, and use that.

The 2 row is "Pale Malt (2 Row) US."

For the Belgian Caramel Pils, go here to import Dingeman's Malts, and drag Cara 8 to your "Grains & Extracts." I am assuming that it is the grain you have, but it is probably close enough nonetheless.
