The feature is surely a welcomed addition but I'm asking you to think more about it. Yes, I figured out how to tell the software to "make it so" or commit the ingredients to the inventory/shopping list. The button is there.

It's just that when you have a few recipies on deck, there has to be some mechanism that considers them all as they pull from your inventory prior to brewing. If you're used to planning a single recipe, brewing, then planning another, then brewing in that cycle, this potential issue would never affect you.

Just as an example, let's say you have a simple inventory of 20 lbs of 2 row and 5 oz of cascade and you plan the following three brews, one per week.

Recipe #1 needs 8lbs 2 row, 2oz cascade.
Recipe #2 needs 8lbs 2 row, 2oz cascade.
Recipe #3 needs 8lbs 2 row, 2oz cascade.

Ok, due to the simplicity, we can all see that I'm 4lbs short on grain and 1oz short on hops. Now we have to question when is it an appropriate time to delete these items from inventory.

If you subtract from inventory as you brew, you won't really notice the shortcoming until after you brew #2.

If you do it as you're creating the recipes, you are commiting ingredients to a recipe you may never brew. It would at least be nice to have an indicator on each recipe to show whether or not that recipe had been commited or "affected" the inventory or not and have a way to undo it.

Maybe I'm the only one that sees this as a problem

Some more thoughts...

Think of it this way;

1. You populate all your supplies into the inventory list along with quanitities (BTP1.5 does this fine).

2. You craft a recipe. Maybe some items are in stock, others are not, either way. Also covered in 1.5.

3. You MIGHT craft another recipe to pull from stock.

Now, the issue I have comes in knowing which ingredients are already commited to a given recipe. The way it's built now, you open a recipe, go into the inventory/shopping list window and you can see how that recipe is affect the inventory. Ok, so now if you want to commit to brewing that recipe, you click "deduct from inventory". The problem is, this is irreversible. If you actually decide to nix this recipe indefinitely, the items don't go back into inventory. There's also no way to keep track of which recipes have been committed to the inventory (or I should say vice versa as well). It would be nice to be able to go into inventory and see how a given stock may already be divied up to various ON-DECK recipes. It's key to be able to uncommit items.

Am I being a little b!tch about this feature or does this make sense?

You can also sit in that inventory window and continue clicking "deduct from inventory" until you're empty.

There needs to be a way to indicate that I've done this per recipe at bare minimum. Either that or the "deduct" button needs to be greyed out after it's been clicked once.
