I'm fairly new to brewing - about a year now, and I'm still doing extract brews. I notice most of the "kit" directions instruct on a specific amount of water to use for the steeping/boil and to top it off to 5 gal. It's usually 3gals in the kettle and then 2gals to top off.
What I'm getting at is in Beersmith, I'm not seeing how much water I need for my beers. I see the volume tab (and perhaps I'm in the right place), but before I starting relying on Beersmith I want to know that I'm looking at the right parts of the software so I can solely use Beersmith to keep records of my brews.
Thanks for your help for this newb.
