Add hops in different units than default
« on: December 05, 2016, 01:07:54 PM »
Is it possible to add hops using a different unit than what is setup by default? For example. I have my units set to ounces for hops, but sometimes when keying in a recipe from a source they have them listed in grams. Currently I switch my default unit to grams or I do the converion in excel first. It would be nice to be able to enter in 6.25g and have it convert it to the default unit. Much like it does with you enter in 9/16 for grain weight and it converts it to decimal pounds on the fly.

You can do this.  Open up any item in a recipe and type in the value as '6.5 g' and BeerSmith will automatically convert the number from grams to your set default unit.
