Total grain weight in recipe view
« on: December 11, 2003, 03:27:18 PM »
I see that you can view the total weight of the grains you use in a mash when you look at a recipe in the preview pane. What I'd like to see is that value inside the recipe formulation mode, so as I add grains, I can see how much I'm using. I don't necessarily know why I want this, but I always, without fail, look for this number when I'm designing a recipe.

Possible?

Quite possible -- I just need to find room on the main recipe entry screen for it (its mainly a space issue).

Coolness. I can see how space could be an issue, and I agree that you don't want to mess with aesthetics too much--it's what makes Beersmith easy to use (for me anyhow).

What about a line below the 'Ingredients' box and above the 'Beer Profile' box? You could tally grain here, along with hops... I don't know what else... something else might come to mind.
