Quick Q... I put a recipe from here (heavenscent IIPA) on beersmith2. I got all of my numbers adjusted to about the same as the recipe. In the "beer profile" my estimated ABV is 7.9, but the "AUCTUAL" ABV shows 4.7.

The estimated OG, and FG is different from the recipe that I created as opposed to the "beer profile"
Why is that???????
Thanks
Jason

Under the recipe, on the right is a column of items like "predicted OG", "actual OG", "IBUs". Put in the actual OG (or the one you expect) and the actual Fg (or the one you expect) and that should fix it.

If not, if you could post a screenshot so I could see it then I'm sure we could fix it.

Have you actually brewed it yet, and plugged your measured OG and FG in?

Hold shift and then hit print screen, load up MS paint, click "paste", save the file as a .jpg and upload it as an attachment to a post here in the thread.
