How do you add custom ingredients?

Post by turkeyjerky214 » Tue Apr 26, 2011 12:51 pm

I've been searching for hours and can't seem to figure out how to add a grain that isn't already in the system.

Can someone from the BTP team let me know how to do this? I just switched over from Beer Alchemy and I love everything about this program so far, but I use Carastan in a few of my recipes, and it's a pretty big PITA that I can't enter it in.

Sorry to hear you have had trouble adding custom ingredients. Carastan will be included in the next update which I plan on having online within the next 48 hours.

In the meantime, you can add custom ingredients by opening the "My Ingredients" folder on the left and clicking on the category of the ingredient you want to add. Click the + button above to add an item. The appropriate ingredient editor will open where you can insert the ingredient data. Click OK when you are done.

Another way to add custom ingredients is to find an ingredient in the "Ingredient DB" folder that is similar to the one you want to add and drag it to "My Ingredients". This copies the ingredient settings of the original ingredient. Double-click the new copy to edit its settings and click OK to save. Then you can use the new ingredient in your recipes by dragging it in.
