Hi All,

Trying to add a few extra ingredients to my MISC ITEMS list - the options for when and how long are different to those for hops and I'm missing the "steep" option. Can this be added as it makes the recipe notes easier to follow - if I add to boil, 20 minutes it's completely out of order with any late addition hops, but if it makes no sense to add as primary or beyond. Any ideas?

Cheers, Pat

I like the idea of being able to 'whirlpool' or 'steep' flavor items and, since this type of addition is getting to be more popular, it seems a reasonable extension to do this with 'misc' items.


Short term work around would be to enter these items in the hops profiles with zero IBU contribution.
