New Grain Updates
« on: February 21, 2005, 01:55:36 PM »
All,
 Posted a number of new updates today available from the main page including Crisp, Cargill and Schreier grain listings, plus a word based label template and also February recipes.

 Thanks to all who contributed - whether it be a recipe, grain listing, template or other file!

Cheers!

But when I try "Tools/Update BeerSmith from Internet" it says there are no updates.  How hard is it to put these upades into the update fromat as opposed to download and import?  If it's easy, then have BeerSmith configurable to automatically check for updates when starting? ;)

Also, the Word doc template link doesn't work.

Also, also, the DR's label & report come down as empty zip files.

Guess I should try everything first, then post a summary of my issues.

Hi,
 The specialty grains are NOT part of the default database so they do not come down as automatic updates.  After some discussion here we decided to post them as "optional add ons" since many people did not want several hundred vendor specific grains in their database.  It is primarily for more advanced users.  You can access them from the data updates page and add only the ones you want.

 I just corrected the word file - it was a naming problem.

 Both of the ZIP files come down just fine and I was able to open them (DR's templates).  Perhaps some problem with your firewall or default handling of downloads??

Cheers!
