I'm interested in this too.. I've done several batches now, guessing, and am getting frustrated by not having this profile quite right..

I'm also interested in this... I'd rather not experiment and get poor results

Do you know your values for boil off ? I don't use beer smith but I have a program that uses my equipment profile and put 0.2 gallons absorbed by grain, mash temp max 158, I think 1 gallon loss to mash tun, put the BTU rating for my burner and guessed 74% efficient and 1 gallon boil off per hour. Pretty basic values and all you have to do is measure them when you brew. I measured grain absorption by pouring into fermentor buckets and I don't sparge (80% mash efficiency) so I ignore that number.

Not sure what beer smith asks for but those are usually equipment measurements from what I've learned.
