Why does the Generator keep telling me I have too many light or dark ingredients?
Sometimes the Generator has trouble making a recipe when there are not enough ingredients. Light beers such as Pilseners are especially prone to this problem. Try adding a dark specialty grain to help the Generator along, and then delete the dark grain using the Recipe Calculator later. If the problem persists, try selecting another style similar to the one you prefer and calculate the result again. The recipe can be modified by jumping to the Recipe Calculator from the Recipe Generator results page.
