Hey guys, anyone know anything about the Hops Use selection box in BeerSmith? Here's a picture of what I'm talking about
The reason I ask is because I want to use an ounce of Simcoe for Aroma. Well I know that you're okay adding aroma hops any time during the last quarter-hour of the boil. However, if I select Aroma in that Use box, BeerSmith's Timer tells me to add it at flame-out, and furthermore, the IBUs go way down. If I set it at Boil and say 15 minutes, the IBUs shoot way up into IPA range.
I don't mind a high-IBU beer, but I'm trying to figure out what's right here. Do I ignore that drop-down option? And if so, why is it there? In this particular case, I'm not going for a bitter beer. Any advice?
edit: I also circled the Hop Type Selector, but I think I understand that function. It doesn't change anything but your records, anyway.
