Adding kettle sizes?
« on: November 06, 2012, 11:02:14 AM »
I am using a Braumeister electric brewing system and my pot size is 50 L but not the BIAB type that is in the drop down.  Getting it to go back to the 10 gallon batch and so forth seems clunkly and I'm a bit worried how its going to set up my steps.

Is there a way to add a new kettle that meets the specs of my system?

Thanks

Hi Rick,
You could select a profile in BeerSmith that is closest to your set up and adapt it to your standards and dimensions.
- Go to "profiles" in the top
- Select "equipment"
- Copy one of the profiles you think is closest to your set up and paste it in the list of profiles
- Select the copy you made (you now have 2 exactly the same profiles) and change everything according your
  set up and give it a different name and click "OK"
- Now you find your "Rick" equipment profile in the list

As an alternative:
- Go to "profiles" in the top
- Select "equipment"
- Select "Add equipment" (click the large kettle figure), and you can fill inn/design your equipment profile from scratch
- Do not forget to give it a name and click "OK"

Regards,
Slurk
