I guess software count as ‘equipment’. I’ve asked this on the BS forum without much luck so far and thought I’d ask the club.
I’m trying to create a recipe for a 10L batch of no boil / raw ale. I plan to boil some hops in 500ml of water during the mash and add that to the wort afterwards. In Beersmith I have gone to the Hop Bitterness Tool and entered 10L batch size and 500ml boil volume and 1.000 SG boil volume for the water, then added some hops to achieve the bitterness I want. Then in my equipment profile for the recipe I’ve adjusted my usual setup to include 500ml of ‘Top-up water’. Does this make sense? I feel like I’m missing something - like maybe how much hop tea I’ll actually have after boiling to add to the wort since some of that 500ml will evapourate. If I use the Boil Off Tool to estimate at a 10% rate it says I’ll lose 50ml, so left with 450ml but that doesn’t seem like much at all for an hour of boiling. Any help would be appreciated.
