Really enjoyed doing this one.  Great beer if you brew it correctly!

Mash pH is indeed affecdted by the water to grain ratio.  If I remember the Breweasy, you have part of the water in the vessel below where the grains are mashed and this water is also recirculated through the grain bed.  If this is the case, then you will want the water below the mash kettle to be treated as well, since that is being used in the mashing process.

Feel free to correct me if I am wrong about the water recirculation.
BeerSmith 3 Support / water pH calculation

I use a BrewEasy system and when I do water adjustment and calculate pH to determine acid to add, does it matter that the grains are added to only a portion of the total water volume? I guess calculations are based on the total water volume since I use a BIAB mash profile. Is the pH affected by the water to grain ratio?

Pro brewers make mistakes too, and then there are typos that make it past the editors. Maybe that's the case in the recipe that stands out. Also, IBUs don't scale well, especially between large pro systems and homebrew size batches. In the rare cases that I use someone else's recipe, I just make my hop additions equal their IBUs. If the recipe seems unreasonable, I don't brew it.

Yeah, I've been brewing my own recipes for 14 years, which is probably why I never noticed it before.

The recipes I'm referring to, one in.particular really, are from professional brewers who've supplied their recipes to BYO.
Yeah, in BeerSmith Mobile 3.1 there were some changes to the general flow of the application.  Most of them seem to be for the positive (like there were some odd issues between read-only and edit mode).  The changes to moving the Brew Day Timer out to the "context menu" out on the menu list was an odd one that makes the flow awkward.

You certainly have open slots for your activations - you can manage your current licenses from the profile page at

To activate a new device use the activation process here.  I am significantly simplifying this process shortly with the next release (basically it will be just a login and check of the license directly from the program):

There is a video of the activation process here:

  If working from the desktop can you possibly go to Recipe->Recipe Archive where there should be a copy of the recipe stored.  Could you possibly recover it from there and then save it as a BSMX file and email it to beersmith at and I will take a look.
  In most cases we've found some corrupt characters in the ingredients somehow - not sure how they get there but we've had odd data imported from very old BeerSmith 1 recipes as well as people using things like emoticons in a recipe notes page from the mobile sometimes causing issues.

BeerSmith 3 Support / Salts unavailable in water tab
« Last post by BigBBrew on May 12, 2021, 07:44:24 PM »
Some of my brewing salts in inventory aren't available in the water tab. I added to the description of some by adding the Morebeer P/N at the end. 

What would cause calcium and gypsum not show up in the window?

What do I need to do to correct this?
