I have just made a Carona clone I found here and would like to record the recipe

I can of course just write it out as a word document

but as most of my recipes these days are made with extracts , dried malts and hops with various yeasts

I have been using Brewmate as my choose of record

and having the brew day printout makes the brewing preparation easier

I have a list of the Coopers can EBU etc

could say , put in liquid malt extract , but can I change the name

have the hop bill etc

EBU would not be accurate because of the can content

but the rest would work

any thoughts

Rod

Have tried other software , but Brewmate is KISS

Don't think you can change the ingredient name but you could put something in the name of the brew.
Coopers Corona maybe?

You can edit the ingredients in brewmate. This way you just enter the details of the can such as potential extract and colour. The one above I just added a hop called "IBU of can" and set it to 100 AA

Nice one Bradley, Tomorrow I'm doing a partial (pitchforks and flaming torches) as I have megaswill drinkers galore descending for Easter. Isn't it funny that when you move to a holiday location one street back from the beach the NSW rellies suddenly develop a strong desire for a get together at holiday time.

I digress: I'd milled a grain bill for a blonde but, as I use 2 10L cubes for no chilling it occurred to me that I could use a can of Coopers Canadian and one cube per brew, plus a bit of dex to bring it up to 5.5% and fill two kegs.

I just put liquid malt extract pale into Brewmate, and had thought about the IBU issue, but with the Canadian there's not much in the first place so I didn't bother. However I'll check the Coopers Site and do what you suggest.

You can edit your fermentables list, for example I have Chinese Maltose Syrup in my list.

Not wishing to start a new thread here, but when using BrewMate to calculate a kit recipe, as you can see from Brad's recipe above, a kit and kilo comes out at far less than 4% ABV, even when I set the efficiency to 100%

Surely that can't be accurate - it should come out at more like 4.6%

You may need to change the attenuation? When i was brewing with kits they finished a lot lower.
Edit; also have a look at what you have the potential extract set to. I just set the can to 1.045 potential extract and it raised the alc% by .6

Edit 2= I just changed attenuation to 80%. Also noted that changing efficiency did not make a difference whether at 0 or 100% which makes sense when you are using extract. Also I chose 1.045 potential extract becuase that is what dry malt extract was set to.

That's what I suspected, because potential extract of a grain is going to always be less than potential extract of a - erm - extract :lol:

When I made my brew 3 days ago the

SG was 1036

which I thought was low

but the Brewmate estimate suggested 1036 so I thought it must be alright

will wait to see the FG
