Postby Camper » Wed Dec 27, 2006 1:41 am

I am currently extract brewing and what to know if Beertools Pro can be used for extract brewing? For example, boil time and hop additions.

Yes. It list many extracts as ingredients. You can do partial volume boils as well. The ingredient database is very up-to-date with the latest products, and the BTP team is very quick to respond to put new ones in the program.
Fermenting : Ordinary Bitter, Hefe
Bottled : Too many bottles

Thanks. I am going to get Beertools Pro. I see that it is the newest program out there and looks like the developers are active.

I don't see any Weyermann extract, which is the one I just got and tonight will be my first extract brew.

I think you can use this page to get the informtion you need to fill in a New Extract in the ingredients database for your Weyermann extract.

Then you should make a request in the Database Additions forum and the software will probably include the info with the next revision.

And don't forget that you can add the info, in the meanwhile, yourself.

Sure. I have done that with a hop from Argentina (Mapuche) and with the Golden Naked Oats, which strangely is in the database in the beertools.com but not in BeerTools Pro. The other strange thing is that I imported the recipe with the Golden Naked Oats to BeerTools Pro, and this malt appears in that particularly recipe with all the data but does not go into the database to be available for other recipes.

The worst thing is that I still need to find out the data for the Pilsner malt made in Brazil and used mainly as our base malt. This is of primary importance, I guess.
