BeerSmith 3 Support / Re: Water tab and salt questions

There is actually an 'add-on' for water which is water target by style.  This may get you what you want. 

Aside from that, you can look to target the water based upon the color and desired flavor balance.  For a Marzen, I would look at a yellow balanced or amber balanced water profile.  Your flavor preferences may be more towards the malty profiles of the same.

Ah, you had asked about the liquid yeast starter.  For some reason, Brad decided to take out the starter option within the recipe for dry yeast.  For the most part, it is often less expensive to just buy another packet of dry yeast instead of using a starter.

But, there is a way to trick the program and allow you to make a starter.  Within the recipe, edit the yeast and change the type to 'liquid'.  You will need to reset the cell count, as it defaults to 100 Billion per package.  You will then have the ability to make a starter on the starter tab.

BeerSmith 3 Support / Water tab and salt questions
« Last post by SJBrewer on January 04, 2020, 09:15:06 AM »
Currently I use municipal water and add half a campden tablet.

I have never adjusted water in the past but would like to give it a try on my next BIAB brew.

In the "water tab", I have selected Distilled Water as my profile (not going to use municipal water) but I am lost on the "Match a target profile". Since I am brewing a M?rzen, I am having a difficult time trying to see which profile matches best. It would be great to see a future version of BS3 suggest (based on style) a water profile. Which profile best fits this style?

I also see that with this version, that you can exclude gypsum if desired as a water agent. Why would I want to do that?

Cheers!

The difference is that in v.2 you could make a liquid starter from a dry yeast under the starter tab, that isnt possible in v.3?

There are two options for the yeast starter in BeerSmith 3.  The first is the stand alone starter which can be found under 'Tools' > 'Yeast Starter'.  The second is in the recipe on the 'Starter' tab.  This is exactly how it was in BS2 with the exception that the 'starter' tab will give you an option for a two stage starter.

Hi all,

That's my problem: My cloud folder is full but there's no recipe in it ? Beersmith tells me that I use 14 out of 15 recipes but it's not the case. All my cloud folder are empty on each software.

Anyone can help me ?
