BeerSmith 3 Support / Re: Struggling to modify OG and FG on recipe
« Last post by Oginme on Yesterday at 12:23:05 PM »
What you are trying to do can be done, but part of the reason for the software (or written brewing logs and notes) is to track your actual results with what you intended to do.  Your actual measured values already captures what you produced and since you already know one of the main reasons you did not hit your target numbers you can use the 'notes' section of the recipe to capture this deviation from your planned process. 
 
If you are hell bent on making the recipe targets match your actual results, then you need to go back and edit your equipment profile within the recipe to set the volumes and brew house efficiency to match what you achieved during the brew session.  This will reset the brew day targets to match your actual results (assuming that your readings are accurate).  Unless you plan on adopting this new process for future brews, however, it really does not help you in any meaningful way for the next time you want to brew this recipe (again, assuming that you actually want to hit the targets you designed the recipe around).

BeerSmith 3 Support / Struggling to modify OG and FG on recipe
« Last post by DianaGiandinoto on Yesterday at 10:45:48 AM »
Fairly new homebrewer here.  I have a recipe under my recipes, I want to modify it as on this last batch I unfortunately over-sparged and so my OG and FG are different.  I want to make adjustments on this recipe so I have it for reference.  This will of course be more of a Sesssion IPA

My actual OG is 1.040,  my FG is 1.010

I've gone into the app clicked actions/edit/brewing session data.  There I changed the meas post mash grav, the boil qty (since I ended up with 7gals in my boil) and the measured FG figures.  Hit save and then when I exit edit mode my figures are still showing the original ABV, OG and FG.

If I try to change the OG in the Gravity, Bitterness and Color bars then it throws off all my ingredient quantities.

Please help, I've been trying to fix this for weeks! I know this app is powerful but it seems compilated and difficult to learn  :-\

After backing up your recipes, you can download the most current version of BeerSmith 3 from BeerSmith.com. You simply open the app and login (to the BeerSmith cloud). You license and subscription should load automatically.

Thank you for the backup advise. I will do that. Cheers.

I have a Gold 12 month Licence - Expires 17 August 2021
I have a Gold 12 month subscription - auto renews: 23 June 2020

And yet Beersmith 3 will not load and does not recognise the activation server.
This was the trial version that first came out.
Should I re-load Beersmith 3 (after doing my backup).?

Your help is appreciated.

yes.. we all know health isn't general calories, but hey... just a thought.

one could question if beers such as lambics are healthy because of the bacterias present. I made a "superfood" beer once with Acai, goji berries, pomegranate, and blueberries... was it healthy? heck if I know, but it was pretty tasty.

Low calorie does not mean healthy. Something being healthy is a bit dubious. Foods are arguably nutritious but reducing a calories in beer are neither healthy or not healthy. Just less calories.

If I drink a 5% ABV 2 carb, 100 calorie hard seltzer,  there is no significant difference than 2 carb, 100 calorie 5% ABV Cream Ale.

I'll argue and imbalance of sugars and simple carbs, compared to protein intake,  is unhealthy. Or 8 carbs, 150 calories 5% ABV beer just as healthy as long is it is balance with the other sugars, carbs and calories and not just piled on. Skip the fries and have 2 beers! W00T!

I reduce carbs, sugars, gluten and, as a by product, calories in all my beers.

There's actually many ways to "lighten" the caloric content of beers, adding enzymes to over-attenuate being one.

I'd say a lambic with b-gluconase or something added with a light body mash at 145 could create a beer with a fg of .990 or lower perhaps, consuming all of the sugars possible.

not something I care to spend my time figuring out though :)

from reading through the posts, and checking your recipe, you're using a light body mash at 150F, if this is off and a bit lower, say 145, than getting an apparent attenuation of 87-89% isn't too far from normal.


to answer a question I had for myself, taking your recipe: if I drop the mash step to 145F I get an Estimated FG of 1.005

If I increase the max attenuation of 3711 to 85% (if adding o2 and yeast nutrients this should be easy) and keep the mash step at 145F I get a est FG of 1.004

I've attached this simple, small change for you to see without altering your recipe

I can't think of any crazy yeasts that from a residual amount (we're talking hundreds of cells) left in a bucket could multiply and outcompete pitched yeast (millions of cells) within three days.
