Add "Misc." catagory to "Use During" for Inventory Item
« on: October 23, 2009, 06:20:07 AM »
I like to keep track of costs for misc. items (like StarSan, propane, O2 etc.) which I use throughout the brew process.  A "misc." category for the USE DURING selection when setting up the item would not only be more accurate, but would prevent the brewsheet from telling me things like "Add 1 oz. StarSan to Primary".

I enter items under Misc such as "Wort Chiller" and "Prep Yeast Starter" so that I don't forget them. 

Can you do something so that items like that could be set to always be "one" so I am not told to add 1.2 Wort Chillers? 

Maybe another category such as "Action" or "To-Do" ?

For the next version I'm thinking of adding the ability to insert custom steps in at various points in the brewsheet so you can have special steps show up on your brewsheet at various stages in the process.

Although not directly related to the OP's idea, it is somewhat related as far as organizing our inventory.

I would like to see a line added to the inventory to alow for a, "note".  I would use it this way:  "Inventory updated on 10/26/09, just after brewing the IPA".  This will allow me to know the my inventory is accurate and up to date as I always know when I brewed last, or, stopped at my LHBS.
