    Had this error pop up twice on me after I've finalized a lengthy recipe. Gone back and checked all my fields are complete with a value in them and even changed the weights from decimals to whole numbers (.5lb to 8oz). Didn't help.

    Anybody else get these? WTF over? :mad:

    Hey just a heads up - I got it to save by sorting my fermentables. Not sure how or why that did it but it worked and I didn't have to start all over. :)

    This is responding to an old post but I got the same message. I had added orange peel in the fermentable section as a custom so you will want to make sure that your selection is from the drop down. You cant add a custom without a L color. Better to just add it on the right side in custom ingredients.
