Change EBC and Alpha
« on: March 20, 2012, 01:24:15 PM »
Hello.
Ive just started to use beersmith2 and was about to add my hops and grain to inventory.  Then i needed to change the EBC and alpha on it couse it wasnt the same that was in the "original" grain and hop list in the prog. And so i did (changed it in the "list") but when i was suppose to add it to inventory, the wrong (original) EBC and alpha was still there... am i just a noob or is this a problem for others? sorry for the bad english, but hope you get the point:)
(Btw it worked in beersmith1)

The individual items are stored as separate instances in your recipe vs. the inventory.

You can either add a copy of an item that you change to match your actual item and save it in the inventory and then use it in your recipe -OR- you can build your recipe and modify the items in it, but the modified ones will only be stored in the recipe.

Hope that helps
