Setting up equipment with Beersmith3
« on: March 22, 2019, 01:32:38 PM »
In this thread:,19803.0.html there was some information that made me re-evaluate that I surely have a few recipes that don't taste what I was expecting with the beersmith result and my equipment (which I probably entered wrong).

I have a :
Tri-Clad Induction Ready 10 Gallon Stainless Steel Welded Brew Kettle with a thermometer and valve (weight 4.89kg)
Copper Immersion chiller (my water well keep the temperature around 10?C all year so it takes about 10 min from boil to yeast temperature)
Hop spider

Some 6 gal, 5 gal and 3 gal carboys for secondary
[btw, when is it a good idea (or for what kind of beer) to directly put wort in a carboy for single fermentation)?]
Enough plastic bucket for primary

I boil on my stove (vitroceramic).

If I always brew with extract and steeping grains. Should "Type" always be "Extract" or sometimes it should be "General" and why/when?

I suppose I should have a setting when I do a full boil with all the water and another set if I ever use a portion of the water for boiling and top after in the primary?

What's actually wrong or just not answered in the equipment windows I attached?

Thank you!
