Default picking a program. HLP

looking 2 get a brewing program not sure which way 2 go. So ill post what i want 2 accomplish and hopefully someonce can steer me in the right direction. I need to take a known 5gal recipe break it down to a 1gal batch. make radical flavor changes then convert the new 1gal changes into a 5+ gal recipe. are any capable of this?

You are going to have to be a bit more specific...

Most software will help you to scale batches. As for making radical flavor changes...how are you hoping the software will help you do this?

i don't think it has problems with small batches....

as far as a peppercorn saison, check out pepe nero from goose island:

I can't imagine why beersmith would have trouble with small batches, as the calculations are pretty trivial. I've certainly not heard anything along those lines, though I've never tried myself.

Of course. Dividing a batch is simple math, and even the most basic software can do it.

i could see an issue in taking a commercial brewery's 90000 bbl recipe and just direct-scaling down to 2 gallons

but if you have a 5g recipe, scaling to 2 should be easy.
