Recipe Generator

Postby Hoppy » Thu Feb 06, 2014 1:39 pm

I seem to be having a problem with the Recipe Generator. No matter what recipe I try to create it loops back and says,"Your recipe contains too many light ingredients for the style you selected. To fix the problem, change your current selections to darker choices or add some darker ingredients to your selections."
The first time it happened I was making a pale ale, now this time I'm trying to make a Bohemian Pils and even after adding the darkest malts it loops back.
I'm using Google Chrome and IE.

Have you tried adding a black or chocolate malt in addition to your pils base malts or extracts? This can sometimes get it past the loop. More ingredients in a recipe increases the likelihood of obtaining a result. The extra ingredients can be subtracted in the Calculator after the recipe is generated. It can be a little temperamental sometimes.

Like I said I add the darkest malts from the drop down menu and it just keeps looping back.
Friend of mine said he had the same problem as I was having.

All Grain, German 2-row Pils generic from the drop down.
That's the only grain I plan to use. The actual grain I'm using isn't listed, it's German Avangard Malz Pilsner Malt.

I was able to push it through by adding German Dark Crystal. A number of other specialty grains worked as well. After obtaining a result I jumped to the Calculator and removed the extra ingredient and slightly adjusted the base malt quantity.

Yes if on the 1st try I add dark malts it will go through, but if I don't it gets stuck in a loop. Then I have to log out, shut down my browser, and start over. :?
Kinda annoying.

I think I identified the cause of the problem and uploaded a fix. If it still gets stuck in a loop when you try to use it please let me know.
