How to scale recipes

Postby turkeyjerky214 » Mon Nov 08, 2010 4:24 pm

So I just downloaded the trial of BTP and have started entering recipes into it. There's still a ton I have to learn about it, but one important feature I'd like to use and can't seem to find is to scale a recipe. All my recipes are for 5 or 5.5 gallon batches, and I just upgraded a bunch of equipment and would like to start doing 11 gallon batches. Is there an easy way to scale a 5 gallon recipe up to an 11 gallon one?

I've tried searching, but if this has already been answered before, please just direct me to the thread.

Thanks!

scaling a recipe

It's pretty easy to scale a recipe to a larger volume:

In the main window, next to "Final Volume @ 68F", you'll see a check box.
Check the box, then set the scrolling window next to that box to "Scale".
Then you just type the new post-boil volume into the "Final Volume @ 68F" window.
