  1. The website is down, and I cannot access my recipes. Please fix this issue!

    I cannot get the website to load and I am hoping that it is not down permanently.

    • Don't force units on weights input boxes

      If you add fermentables or hops, the focus automatically jumps to the weight amount box, which, by default shows 0 g/oz.

      If you overtype this with the amount in numbers, nothing happens. You MUST add the unit type IN the box (g, kg or oz etc.)

      To me it would make much more sense to leave the box for numerical input, and display and force the units to the right of the box.

      • Search

        A keyword/ingredient search would be great. It's nice being able to browse recipes, but searching would be better.

        • Add a print button!

          Adding a print button with a few print options would be a nice feature. When I print my recipes always look crappy. Thanks.

          • IBU Calculator

            The style comparison calculator for IBUs doesn't seem to be working. I added 2 oz of Cascade to my recipe and the IBU remains at zero.

            • Add malt extracts that are not in the dropdown list, like the Mr. Beer ones.

              I am using Mr. Beer hopped malt extracts plus other ingredients.

                  • Connect for easy ordering

                    Connect the website with northern brewer or maybe a few bigger websites that have large enough selections and have an automated order system to add all ingredients automatically to the websites cart.

                    • Add support for custom "Extra" ingredients (not accounted for in calculations).

                      Add the ability to add customized "extra" ingredients (that have no affect on calculations, like gravity and bitterness).

                        • Graph of types, views...

                          It would be a nice use of the database to provide (for enjoyment purposes) the ability to show a graph of the different types of recipes (style-based), and maybe a graph of the recipes with the most views. Not important in the least, and can wait for awhile, for sure. :)

                          • Adjust amount of yeast to use...

                            Can we get a way to add 4 vials of a yeast to a lager, or define starter information? Currently I see that one can simply add more than one yeast packet/vial, and that works. I'd like to see a number pulldown, at least.

                              • An interactive brew day sheet.

                                An interactive brew day sheet.

                                Instead of printing out the brew day sheet, put the sheet right on your program, add timers with audio alarms, and even allow us to add notes that record times, and specs on the sheet, and then save the sheet in a journal.

                                Let us add as many timers as we like.

                                Example:

                                Steep grains, 155 degrees: 30 minutes
                                Add extract and bring to boil,
                                Start boil timer:
                                Add 1st hop, 60 minutes
                                add 2nd hop, 30 minutes
                                add 3 hop, 15 minutes
                                Add Immersion cooler, 15 minutes
                                Add Irish Moss, 15 minutes
                                Knock on…

                                  • Can we set different measurements on hops and grains?

                                    I like to measure grains and extract by English measurements, but with hops it feels more accurate to measure in Metric. Would it be possible to split the measurements option in your profile?

                                    • Recipe Search via Hop(s)

                                      I really like the clean look of your query feature where you can narrow recipes down by 'all-grain' or 'color' for instance. I'm not sure how to best tie this in with your existing GUI, but it'd be nice if you could add a "contains hop(s)" option. Narrowing down recipes that contain one selected hop type would be cool, and if you can figure out a nice way to incorporate it, multiple hop selections would really be nice.

                                      Seems like I'm always trying to find recipes that match whatever hop combos I have in stock. I haven't seen this kind…
