figuring out grain bill %'s

(1/4) > >>

dzlater:
  I know the percentages of grain I want,
but have to adjust them for efficiency.
  I tried using the method in Designing Great Beers to figure out
my grain bill. What this did was screw up my percents by weight.
I believe the book is giving me %'s by gravity per lb. ?
  So what I did was use the gravity per lb of the base malt
for all the other grains, so the weight %'s would stay constant.
  This seemed to work but I'm not sure it's the correct way to
go about it. Are there any easier way to scale grain bills for efficiency?

I can put all #'s up if any one cares???

Thanks

Go ahead and put the numbers up if you want but then you really ought to look into some homebrew software.  Beersmith has a downloadable free trial version and it'll let you scale recipes to your hearts content.
