  I"ve not added a supplier field but it would probably not be hard to add.  The challenge is updating many thousands of ingredients/add-ons and recipes however!

As I read the OP's request, the supplier field would be something the user inputs as needed. Whether it's a particular hop farm, online or local retailer, or even their own yard, it seems like a matter of preference. Maybe not a very extensive update?

In my opinion, the Misc category is also in need of a supplier field for the same reason. It just makes the shopping list easier to sort and not miss anything.

Pretty easy to just put your supplier(s) in parentheses after the name of the hop.

Another alternative is to number your suppliers and preface the products you get from them with a number. When you type the prefix into the search box all of the products from that supplier be listed before other products. I use 3 main suppliers and this method works great for me. I use it for hops, fermentables, yeasts and misc.

Example: 2 Great Western Pale Ale Malt.

You simply need a larger fermenter!

Suggestions / Supplier Field in Ingredient lists

Hi I've been using Beersmith for many years and couldn't now work without it.
A small request, within the Fermentables items there is a field for Supplier but this does not exist for the Hops. It would make life easier if the supplier for all the inventory items could be available and also viewed in all the list views, ie ingredients and inventory.
Keep up the great work!

Hi,
  1. Currently the themes are limited - I will be addressing a proper dark mode in an upcoming version which I'm starting work on now.
   2.  There is a button to add an item and keep the window open but you need to click or select it - enter will do the OK action and close the dialog by default (escape will cancel).

BeerSmith 3 Support / Couple of BS3 questions
« Last post by karthil on September 18, 2021, 10:28:03 PM »
Hello all.  I had a couple of questions:
1. Regarding Beersmith 3 in Windows, there's a black color scheme which I've enabled.  But the program is still 90% bright white.  Is there support for dark mode in Windows which will also make the rest of the window dark?  I've enabled dark theming in Windows.  But no impact on Beersmith.
2. Generally speaking, I try to not use the mouse or trackpad both for ergo reasons and speed.  When adding a new recipe, if I hit enter after adding a fermentable, it will close the window.  But, I'd think that generally you're adding more than one fermentable (and probably more than one hop).  So you'd want to keep the window open after adding one of the above.  is there a keyboard button/hotkey that will complete adding the fermentable and act as if you clicked "add fermentable without closing"?

Thanks!

Equipment / Re: Brewzilla 3.1.1 - 110 volt

I've been using a Digimash, the same platform as the Brewzilla, but without the bells and whistles, for a couple of years. I use an external pump to recirculate. The 500 watt element does a good job of maintaining mash temperature. The digital readout can be deceiving until you get used to it. The wide swings you see aren't representative of the actual mash temperature. While it's not odd to see the readout fluctuate as much as 6 or 8 degrees during the mash, the actual mash will hold within a degree or two throughout when recirculating.

The machine isn't going to change. You need to learn to use it to its potential. The convenience of an all in one doesn't come without tradeoffs. Once you've brewed a few times and learn the ins and outs, it'll do a good job for you.

If the 500W element is not enough to hold temperature during the mash, then I would suspect either you are losing too much heat in your system or there is something wrong with the output of that element.  Generally, if there are two elements, they are both used for the boil.  The higher one is used for bringing the temperature up quicker and the lower one is used for maintaining the hold temperatures during the mash steps.  You might want to write to Brewzilla directly with your specific concerns and questions.  They can probably give you an idea of what to expect for boil off rate and boil vigor as well as the functions of each element and expectations from them.
