I just purchased the "15 gallon commercial quality kettle kit" from Midwest Supplies ( http://www.midwestsupplies.com/15-ga...ettle-kit.html ). I also bought another 15 gallon boil kettle.

I was wondering if someone has already made a beersmith equipment profile for this hardware configuration that they'd be willing to share... I'm tempted to use the preinstalled "Stainless Kegs" as a baseline and then tweak it, but some of the parameters I don't know (evaporation rate, for example)...

Thanks!
Jeremy

Test your evap rate and use the measured value. Put a certain amount of water in your kettle and boil for an hour then measure the amount after the boil and calculate what you lost!
