Water/Grain ratio is corrupted in BeerXML output file
« on: June 24, 2011, 07:12:53 AM »
Hello,

although I have 2.6 l/kg in the mash step displayed, I got a corrupted string in XML file:
<MASH_STEPS>
<MASH_STEP>
 <NAME>Mash In</NAME>
 <VERSION>1</VERSION>
 <TYPE>Infusion</TYPE>
 <INFUSE_AMOUNT>9.8800000</INFUSE_AMOUNT>
 <STEP_TIME>75.0000000</STEP_TIME>
 <STEP_TEMP>65.6000000</STEP_TEMP>
 <RAMP_TIME>2.0000000</RAMP_TIME>
 <END_TEMP>65.6000000</END_TEMP>
 <DESCRIPTION>Add 9.88 l of water at 72.5 C</DESCRIPTION>
 <WATER_GRAIN_RATIO>o &#400;&#780;&#14048;&#1110;&#42618;&tilde;&#13280;&#1120;</WATER_GRAIN_RATIO>
 <DECOCTION_AMT>0.00 l</DECOCTION_AMT>
 <INFUSE_TEMP>72.5 C</INFUSE_TEMP>
 <DISPLAY_STEP_TEMP>65.6 C</DISPLAY_STEP_TEMP>
 <DISPLAY_INFUSE_AMT>9.88 l</DISPLAY_INFUSE_AMT>
</MASH_STEP>
</MASH_STEPS>
(I even have to remove some special characters which corrupt the forum preview (I guess seen as HTML tags)
for some recipes, I also got an empty field (which is acceptable as I did not use it in my post processing)
 <WATER_GRAIN_RATIO></WATER_GRAIN_RATIO>


it v1.4 it was:
 <WATER_GRAIN_RATIO>2.61</WATER_GRAIN_RATIO>

Maybe this file is computed from other values and there is some unit conversion issues.

Regards,
Patrick

Sorry,
  I did not catch this in testing. However I just did a quick check in build 40 and it appears that the field is empty when I export it in many cases.

   I promise I will correct this in the next build.
