Equipment / Re: Keg King Robobrew Profile Request
« Last post by Ck27 on Yesterday at 07:28:13 PM »
This may help...

PS. you should really take actual measurements from your equipment. You can import someone else's profile but then you'll be relying on their specific data and measurements. To get the most accurate results with your beer, customize the equipment profile to your exact system.

except he wont be since my data would apply the same to every robobrew, I don't have my own way of brewing.

BOB357 - thanks for the reply, I pulled gas off one of my kegs and put it on the new one last night. I appreciate the response/insight.

The limits that it sets for determining fermentation quality does not cover 145?F.  This was brought up a couple of years ago and I am surprised that it is not corrected for the current version.  Though, since I don't mash at that low of a temperature, I had not given it another thought.  I think the upper cut off is just below 160?F as well, though I know I get pretty good conversion (and fairly high FG) when I have mashed at 162?F.  There are just so many variables that affect the calculation of FG, I really don't hang too much on that estimated value.
BeerSmith 2 Questions / Re: Add Style?
« Last post by Oginme on Yesterday at 06:03:27 PM »
When you created the style, what style guide did you put it under?  BeerSmith only displays the style guide you have set for default, so if you set it for another style guide, it will not show up.  To change the style guide which is displayed, go to 'options' > 'display style guide' and set it to the style guide you entered when you set up the style profile.
another update.
for gigs i created a different equipment profile and adjusted the mash tun from basically a 10 gal to a 5. In doing that I get a more appropriate strike temperature. Its odd that the strike temp increases when decreasing the size of the mash tun. same recipe and same profile except mash tun volume and weight are cut in half.
i would figure that a larger tun would require a hotter strike temp to reach appropriate temp.

I completely understand your point. However, what is odd about the program's behavior is that it'll completely ignore the 145 degree mash step, but if you raise it to 145.4 suddenly things change. Seems like there's some sort of cut-off for temperature with multiple steps.  Just unexpected.

As an example:

Dough in at 122F, Maltose rest at 145F for 45 minutes, Dextrinization rest at 160F for 20 minutes results in an estimated FG of 1.016.

Dough in at 122F, Maltose rest at 145.4F for 45 minutes, Dextrinization rest at 160F for 20 minutes results in an estimated FG of 1.007.

Meanwhile, a single infusion mash at 145F for 60 minutes shows an estimated FG of 1.007.

Export profiles and recipes or I can't really help any more. I don't have mobile version.


hey, sorry i'm a day late. here's the export file.
when using the infusion tool it shows the "appropriate" strike temperature. leme know what you think.

BeerSmith 2 Questions / Add Style?
« Last post by Ahks on Yesterday at 02:52:48 PM »
Playing with adding a custom style for a flavor I'm hunting that doesn't quite fit into other styles.

Put in a bunch of stuff, then click OK to Save and close.


Whered it go? Searched BeerSmith styles for it, nada. Searched my HDD, nada.

Is it gone or is it hiding somewhere?

It certainly won't hurt to shake them a bit, but it probably won't help much over just inverting the bottles.

I bought a 4 way gas manifold a few years back with the check valves shown here:  Within a couple of months I had to replace 2 of them. A few weeks later I had to replace one of the replacements.

I had an old regulator with a splitter and 2 check valves that came with my original tower which I bought from Keg Cowboy many years ago. I robbed the check valves off of that and haven't had a problem since. Definitely would recommend staying away from the ones I linked.
