Not sure if this is a problem on the Beersmith side or the competition software...  Running the new 2.0.48 build...  exported the XML file for upload into a competition registration.  The entry registration records/displays the ferm temp in F, and BS exported it in C, though units were set to F.
e.g. BS recipe lists primary ferm temp as 50F  but export (displayed in competition sw as 122F

Hi,
  BeerXML exports everything in metric (C and Kg/Liters) for defined fields - it is part of the standard to use metric units for BeerXML data fields.  Some display fields are in "display units" but these are not used with stored data.

I think there's a bug in the BeerXML export of BeerSmith 2. It appears that the application is exporting in whatever temperature you have set instead of always in Celsius.

Example line from a recent export with the units set to Fahrenheit:

<PRIMARY_TEMP>67.0000000</PRIMARY_TEMP>
...
<DISPLAY_PRIMARY_TEMP>67.0 F</DISPLAY_PRIMARY_TEMP>

Thanks,
  If that is the case I will put this one on the high priority list to correct.
