Doing my first AG today! Yay!:ban:

Im trying to put in the ingredients to beer smith and I'm not sure what the barley that I am using is labeled under. I am using Rahr 2-row pale and Belgian Caramel Pils. Anyone know what these are labeled under in the ingredients screen?

As for the Belgian Caramel Pils, beats me. You could make a new ingredient based on the Belgian Pils, tweak the SRM to whatever the grain analysis says, and use that.

The 2 row is "Pale Malt (2 Row) US."

For the Belgian Caramel Pils, go here to import Dingeman's Malts, and drag Cara 8 to your "Grains & Extracts." I am assuming that it is the grain you have, but it is probably close enough nonetheless.
