Where to find the recipe folder
« on: January 25, 2022, 10:27:26 PM »
I haven't used BeerSmith in a long time and want to update. Using version 3.0.8 on a Mac. It is suggested to backup the recipe folder before updating to recent version.

Where can I find the recipe folder on my local hard drive?

Thank you,

  Technically its under ~/Library/Application Support/BeerSmith3 or you can use Go->Library and then nav from there from Finder.

  The newer versions of BeerSmith also have a very handy File->Full Backup to Zip command which can be used to make a full backup but you probably need to complete your update first.

  Also - check to see which OSX you have as there are two different downloads on the download page for Mac now - 3.2.7 is for Big Sur or higher and there is an alternate 3.2.7a for older Macs.
