Maximum Number of Recipes?
« on: August 23, 2021, 12:56:28 PM »
This is actually a happy story..... The latest update fixed my problem!
Now for the question on how to best prevent it from happening again:
Earlier this year Beersmith 3 stopped saving any changes to the recipe file.   Its a large file of around 20mb (~550 recipes) & I have some archives of that are around 31mb.  I could make changes to existing recipes and add new recipes to the file while the program was open, but none of the changes would save upon closing the program.  I updated to 3.2.7 and it has started working again.

Any thoughts on if this was corrupted recipe file or is there a physical limit to the number of recipes (or size of data file) that BS can manage?  If it is a limit on file, is it better to have a base recipe file and then save brewed batches as brew logs to reduce the size of the recipe file?
