If the Weyermann is a German import, use the German Wheat. Durst is Belgian Pilsen, I believe.

Which ones can't you find? It doesn't show brand names, but it has a listing for all of those except CaraMunich II. Make sure you have a relatively recent version. Pick Help | About. They're up to version 1_40 Build 33.

If you have more specs on each one, you can create your own grains as well. From the left pane pick Grains & Extracts. There you can create a new Grain or Extract from the button at the top, or just copy/paste a similar one and change the values. For example, the Weyermann website has a table with the specs for CaraMunch I, II and III, here. So you could add them to the list. It's basically just their version of a Crystal/Caramel malt, so you could copy one of the existing ones and add the appropriate Lovibond range.

I downloaded the latest version, but I am still confused.
Is the " 4 lbs Durst Pilsen" thats listed on the recipe (no other info listed) the same as "Pilsner (2 row) GER, on the Beer Smith Program.

Is "malt" the same as wheat?

What could I use as the caramunich malt II.??

Thanks for the help, I know these are noob q's.

Use:
Wheat Malt, Dark (Germany) for the Weyermann Dark Wheat
Wheat Malt, Ger (Germany) for the Weyermann Pale Wheat
Pilsner 2-Row (Ger)
Caramunich II is Type II Munich, Use Munich Malt - 20

No. You are not stupid.

This hobby can become technical really fast. There is another thread here somewhere suggesting we begin to work together to add ingredients to Beer Smith so all can benefit.

The software is great. And you are not stupid.
