I am trying to change my water/grist ration to 1.25 in BS v2. I click on the mash step and change it but the change doesnt take and it automatically goes back to 1.568 or something like that. How do I force it to keep the 1.25 rate?

This is a step in the right direction. You will need to edit the mash profiles you are using. You can choose the Mash Prodile you want (light body, medium body, ect, with Batch Sparge, No Sparge, Mash OUt, etc.

Choose your mash profile, then click on it to edit the liquor to grist ratio.

This should work for you.
