    Hello,

    For those of us who make larger or smaller batches, it would be useful to be able to set a default batch size. It makes for one less field to have to edit before starting with the design of the recipe.

    Great site guys!

    Re: Default Batch

    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).

    Re: Default Batch

    I like this solution, but I can't save the recipe without adding a fermentable. Now I have to enter a dummy fermentable which I'll often have to overwrite when making the recipe. It's still better than not using the template, thanks for the tip!

    Re: (NEXT RELEASE) Default Batch

    The next release will contain two new profile options under Brew Settings that will flow into the recipe editor:

    Default Batch Size
    Default Boil Size

    This is now taken care of, look for the default options under your brewing profile.
