    I tried searching for the answer to this but kept getting "the words are too common" error.

    I'm currently a BIAB brewer and a Beersmith user and am looking to convert to Brewers Friend. I have my recipe set up (imported) and my equipment profile set up. I select BIAB on the recipe. I think all of that is correct. What I need to see is the total water needed to start (not the boil volume). Am I missing a step here? Can Brewers Friend show this?

    First make sure you add your mash % then go to recipe tools then quick water calculator

    Also make sure you set up your losses and kettle size in your defaults

    Wow. Thanks for the quick replies. It was right there in front of my face.
    Still working though the differences but I like it so far.
