I just recently purchased BrewSmith 2.0 and I have one question. I have plenty of recipes that I want to enter so as I can get the fully use out of it and one thing Im having a problem with is when entering the style Im finding that there isn't always a style to fit with them. They all cant be a specialty style. For instance I have a Chocolate Cherry Stout to enter should it be 20A (fruit beer) or 20A (specialty beer).

I did my choco cherry stout under sweet stout, and if its the boozy version, imperial stout. This is a good program though to realize that our personal recipes are not necessarily within scheduled guidelines.

According to BJCP, which is what Brad uses for BeerSmith, Chocolate Cherry Stout is a Specialty beer.
