    Hello,

    There is an option for "Default Yeast" in the Recipe Edit function, but there is no where else on the site that ties into it. Having a selectable "Default Yeast" that one could set in their profile would be useful, especially for brewers who culture their own yeast.

    Great site guys!

    This can be done, but it gets into making a default for most fields, which is doable, but there is another approach that you can use in the mean time:

    Create a recipe called 'template' setup the way you want as a base, then copy it when you want to start a new recipe. That way your yeast nutrient, irish moss, water, etc etc are all there (including yeast).

    While we are adding default batch size, and default boil size in a related thread, we are going to hold off on setting up a default yeast. We are working on giving each brewer complete control over the list of grains and yeast. So for now, the idea of a default yeast is on hold until we address that.
