BeerSmith 3 Support / BeerSmith 3 Desktop Icon in Windows 10
« Last post by PICCOLO-BREW on Today at 02:47:30 PM »
This may seem silly, not important to the function of the program, but it's making me crazy! lol

The BeerSmith 3 Desktop Icon looks like a glass of Pale Ale vs. the Icon that shows on the taskbar while the program is running looks like a Stout ...
was this intentional or is it a bug?

Nope, added up the numbers and they work out exactly as the program displays.  You do need to include the rice hulls as this goes into the mash.

This had to have been painfully annoying to you, because it seems so simple, but I really appreciate you taking the time to help me out. The home brewing community as a whole, by and large, is an amazing community. Thank you x1,000,000!!

Cheers!

But the design tab DOES include the sugar in the total grains calculation.  It is a sum of all the 'fermentables' included in the recipe.  Granted, the labeling is not crisp nor specific, but if you add up all the amounts on the design window, you will see that it adds up to the 'grains' total on the design tab.  Now if you subtract out the sugar weight, you will get the weight of grains added to the mash tun which appears on the mash tab.

I'll have to look when I get home, because I know it was late last night when I was doing the calculations, but I subtracted the milk sugar I didn't get the same number of "grain" on the bottom right. Maybe the coffee, as an adjunct, is included in it too?

I honestly did not see that.  When I have some time, I will go back to your original and see what the grains difference is.

Remember that on the mash tab, the grain weight is only that weight in the mash tun, so the weight of the sugar (counted in the design tab) will not appear on the mash tab.  Could this be the difference you were seeing?

So to the bottom right of the Design tab it tells me the amount of Grain, Hops, etc. etc. In the grain amount it's listed as 23+ pounds but when I add the grain up on my calculator I get 21.75; which is exactly what I intended for. My calculations include 1lb of Rice Hulls, but NOT the sugar I'll be adding w/ 5 min left in the boil. The grain amount on the bottom right is not editable, so I'm trying to figure out what else it's accounting for.

The volume is corrected once you have 'drain mash tun before sparging' is checked.  This will give you a total water demand of around 8.8 gallons.

That's great, thank you so much! Did the grain amount straighten out? I know there was a difference on the Design tab.
