Bummer. Sorry for bad stear
I'd go straight to Brad Smith on that question. He's always been super responsive to any inquiries I've made regarding tweaking the program with the correct profiles, etc. I'm sure you won't be the first one asking that question either.
+1. Also, there is a video on his website on how to set your equipement profile.
Tried this today. Very nice, thick imperial stout. Bottled in September 2012. Oaky, with vanilla and cocoa notes. Thick and malty. $6 a bottle though. I think I'll drink Ron's instead. His is just as good.
In your equipment profile, you can set your hop utilization factor. IIRC the factor for 20 gal is 110%, 1BBL volumes and above is 125% but I brew 10gal so what the heck do I know?
I contemplating buying some nylon paint strainers to use instead of the muslin grain bags. If I happen to buy the kind without a drawstring, would it be a problem to use zip ties to close the tops when used during the boil? I not concerned that they'll melt but maybe some off-flavors?
