Brewing System Section: Displays batch volumes with settings for efficiency and mash temperature for the current recipe. Use the Setup sheet to enter brewing system information like vessel size and boil off per hour.
ezRecipe

Supports both 'kettle' and 'fermentor' efficiency calculation options.

BJCP Style Section: Choose from dozens of beer styles to base your new recipe on.
ezRecipe

Style guidelines provide recommended ranges for color, bittering and alcohol levels.

Recipe Detail Section: Predicted recipe values change based on unique combinations of ingredients and brewing system settings.
ezRecipe

Recipes can stay within recommended ranges, unless you're brewing a new style.

Grain & Adjunct Section: The type and quantity of grains used in the mash can be selected from a built-in list. You then have the option to use the default color and extract potential values or override them with values of your own. This also applies to custom DIpH values entered by advanced users. Either way, values entered in this section are saved with the recipe and will be reloaded when the recipe is selected.
ezRecipe

Adjuncts are added to the boil kettle and have no affect on the mash.

Water Property Section: Conversion optimization occurs in the 5.2 to 5.6 mash pH range. When base malts are mashed in distilled water the mash typically settles in the 5.6 to 5.8 pH range. Brewing salts modify the flavor and mineral content of brewing water. Lactic and Phosphoric acid reduce pH and Baking Soda and Slaked Lime are used to raise pH.
ezRecipe

Displayed recipe water property, mash analysis and pH prediction.

Hop & Utilization Section: Select the types of hop to use from a list of popular hops. Then enter the weight, type and usage for each hop selected. The default alpha acid percentage can be used or overridden with your own values. The values entered in this section are saved with the recipe and will be reloaded when the recipe is selected.
ezRecipe

Types are pellet, whole and extract used in boil, whirlpool and dry hop.

Yeast & Attenuation Section: Enter the name and attenuation rate of the yeast used with the recipe. Most types of yeast have a 65% to 85% attenuation rate. The actual attenuation rate varies based on fermentation conditions and beer gravity.
ezRecipe

Attenuation rate and fermentation temperature influence final gravity.
