    As discussed in another topic I have been mucking around and trying to get Beersmith 2 to play along with getting the EBC and IBU right using the Coopers Kit Can Range. The file attached has the current range of Coopers with all the figures based on that on their website. It is very close but might not be down to the .1 correct as Beersmith is based around a lb system for working out the IBU.

    If anyone has any issues or problems please let me know and I will do my best to have a look at it. But without further blabbing please find the file attached.

    Here you go guys hopefully this works.

    The instructions I can give are save the file. Then open Beersmith > go to Ingredients > Open File > Select the file and you should be ready to go.

    I've downloaded and opened this file.
    Am I supposed to be able to use this to build a recipe?
    Don't seem to be able to find them in any ingredient list.
    I suppose the obvious solution is go A.G. :) - Soon, but in the meantime - any suggestions?

    1. Once the file is open, go to Ingredients > Grain.
    2. Go back to the coopers kits.bsmx tab.
    3. Press Ctrl + a to select all the entries.
    4. Press Ctrl + c to copy them.
    5. Now back to the grains tab
    6. Press Ctrl + v to paste them in.

    Now they should be available under the grain list when making a recipe.

    Cheers alien. Tried and succeeded.

    keifer - Thanks mate. Any chance of adding their unhopped LME cans to the file?

    Also - I'm new to Beersmith and AHB, so have missed any other add-ons. Is there a list or database I can grab other ingredients from?

    All you need to do is download the file, then open beer smith and click file then open, then locate file and select it and waalaa it opens a new tab with everything in the file. Then all you have to do is highlight all the items, copy and then go to the ingredients page click grain and then where your grains are list right click and click paste.

    I suppose my problem is a bit different

    I want the information to enter into my Brewmate program

    I was hoping to open the file and find a file with each coopers can and the relevant numbers

    The file isn't intended for brewmate, or anything other than Beersmith. If you have some computer nous, you could save the ".bsmx" file within the zip on your PC, then open it with a free program such as Textpad or Notepad++. It's in an xml format, that you can manually read, and then enter the info yourself into Brewmate. But you'll need to know a bit about what you're doing.

    For example, I can see the first entry is Coopers Australian Pale Ale, with an IBU (Gallon per Lb) of 30, etc etc. But really, it'll be very hard to manually enter the info across, Beersmith wants very different stuff to Brewmate.

    Thanks,

    Bit silly how you have to copy across to grains, tripped me up at first.

    As stated above need LLME.

    Found a download in the addons tab for all coopers cans, but the dark LME comes in at EBC 1650. Does this sound right?

    I'm a newbie and not proporting to know what I'm talking about, but the EBC for the dark does appear right according to the coopers site.
    http://www.coopers.com.au/corporate/malt-extract.

    I was more interested in the LLME which is not part of your download. Doesn't really matter as I'll stick with the Beersmith's version of that particular kit.

    But I do appreciate you've got Pale Ale adjusted, already swapped it on my latest recipe and it bought the IBU back into the green.

    Thanks again.

    No worries mate!

    Here is the data formatted for use with BrewMate. You will just need to copy it all to the BMData.xml file found, most likely in, C:\BrewMate. Just open that with a text editior, find the <grains></grains> section and add it in there, you should see what it looks like.

    If not, I'll attach my version of BMData.xml for you, but if you have added any of your own grains/yeast/etc you will lose it and need to add it again.
