    I'm wondering if its possible to get an info bar for actual measurements based on brew logs in brew sessions view. That view is really nice and it would be great to see that instead of the recipe estimates. ADD INFO BAR FOR ACTUALS ON BREW SESSIONS.JPG

    Good idea! I am wondering where you (and others) think it would be best. In the top with the recipe area, so you can easily compare projected to actual?

    Thats what I was thinking. Either that or in the Brew Log tab.

    I wonder if it would be nice on the right, in another column corresponding to the stats there. Then you could compare at a glance. Is that something that seems logical?

    I was thinking either of the 2 places I messily outlined in blue. The red being the information and format, but pulling the information from the brew logs instead of the recipe.
    I think right under the recipe based one would be really convenient to be able to compare actuals to estimates.

    Also, here you can see the brew day the proved to me, once and for all, that Murphy's Law is real. :)

    Anything that makes the recipe longer sometimes makes it print out 2 pages if you choose to print. I like the idea of easily comparing so vote side by side.

    Hmmm, that's a good point as well. @Companion Brewing Company , do you think that the side by side would be as good for your needs?

    Most everything is going to take up some real estate somewhere. My recipes already run over into two pages, particularly after I've brewed a recipe a few times and have a few notes built up. I still like the idea of putting the actuals under the calculations, maybe halving the size of the area used for each row. Other hand, another column has room for at least six rows and no more real estate used (that area is currently white space). It's not a feature I'm particularly interested in, just an interesting design problem.

    Forgot to mention, I have a duplex printer so two pages isn't an issue - I'm still just using one sheet and a bit more ink.

    The actuals directly under the predicted would be more easily comparable I would say as they would be one under the other but there is a empty space side by side and it only needs to include actual OG - FG - ABV.

    Edit : I suppose the actual pre-boil gravity could be included so it wouldn't have an entry to be compared to in the bar.

    Yeah it sounds like it would be better for both real estate on the web page and when printing.
    Thanks for the extra feedback on the idea @Head First and @Nosybear . I really like the pre-boil gravity idea.

    Just wanted to put in a vote for this idea. I'd be happy with any format, but would love to see estimated vs actual numbers coexisting. Hope this gets implemented. Cheers!

    Yes, we're happy about this idea. I think it'll be next to the projected stats, since it should show up in the empty real estate to the right of it.
