I don't think Beersmith calculates FG. You have to enter that manually. Just assume 25% of the OG. I.e., if you start at 60 gravity points (1.060), it should finished around 15 points (1.015).

Beersmith (or ANY software) has NO idea what the FG is supposed to be. They look only at the attenuation rating of the yeast, which is only meant for comparing one strain to another. It's not really indication of the attenuation you can expect. The fermentability of the wort sets that. You can get from 60-90% attenuation with the same yeast depending on the wort fermentability, pitching rate and yeast health.

Well.....I totally screwed up my first attempt today. I did a partial mash version and cut the Pale Malt back to 3 pounds. I must have miscalculated how much DME to add (4 lbs) or didn't get very good efficiency (BIAB). My OG was 1.062. I also forgot to add the DME until half way through the boil so my IBUs will be higher than planned. I'm thinking of adding some DME to boost the gravity and help balance out the extra bitterness. I'd like to get to the intended gravity of 1.073 or higher to help balance the extra bitterness from the low gravity boil. Any suggestions?

It's been two days. At this point I'll probably leave it alone and try again next time. My original thought was to boil up 1.5 lbs of DME and add it to primary. Oh, well.

EDIT: 9/10/12 I couldn't help myself. I added the DME.

I've got a question about this brew.

There has been discussion in terms of the gravity discrepancies here and it is a general agreement to brew the beer to 1.073 OG. In scaling the recipe to match this OG, is it a matter of just dropping the 2 row down or scale back all grains? If it is all grains, does anyone have an updated recipe with the amounts? Thanks!

I recommend scaling all grains so the relative % stays the same.

Thank you for your quick reply, Denny. If the hops get here in time (they should but HopsDirect didn't e-mail me a tracking #), we will be brewing 10 gallons of this Friday night!

Brewed up a batch of this last Saturday...Talk about a bad brew day. I was aiming to make a 10 gallon batch with my 52qt cooler mash tun. I thought I would have enough space if I went with a thicker mash. I maxed out the mash tun and still had a gallon or so of water left. Needless to say it was very hard to try and stir it all together so I'm sure my extraction was bad since after boiling for over 90 min my SG was only 1.063. So I decided to just go with that and ended up with 8.5 gallons. While cleaning up I noticed an oz of Columbus that never made it in for the bittering. So ibu's and gravity are way off but it does seem to be fermenting very nicely with the huge starter of Denny's favorite that I pitched. Hopefully it will still turn out decent but I definitely need to make this one again.

52 quarts is 13 gallons. At 1.25 qt/lb and 32.5 lbs of grain (assuming you doubled the recipe from the OP), online calculators show a mash tun size of 12.76 gallons. At 1 qt/lb, it's 10.73 gallons.

I am assuming this calculator is just a guideline sort of a thing?

That's exactly what I was going with and yes I just doubled the recipe from the original post so I'm not sure what was different but it was filled to the brim with about a gallon left over and that was striking with a little over 10 gallons for 1.25qt/lb.
