    Hey all - just wanted to let everyone know that we pushed out an update to the app that fixes the issue that caused the original gravity to calculate incorrectly. You can download the latest version of the app here:

    Thanks again for all your patience and support!

    just a note when creating a recipe in the Windows Program then uploading to the website it doesn't allow you to change the fermentables with a drop down on the website like normal, it seems to mimic the add custom fermentable
