Is there a way to search my recipes by style?

    I can't find an efficient way to search my old recipes. The search bar under My Recipes only appears to search the name field. What I really want is to be able to search by style. When I want to go brew style X, pull up all my old recipes of that style to pick one to redo or use as a jumping-off point. I want something like the Serach > Beer Recipes but just for my own recipes. I have something like 280 old recipes (including snapshots) and finding I don't remember the name of is a pain.

    Am I missing something? Or should I put in a feature suggestion?

    I do that myself- and sometimes I don’t name recipes. What I do is type what I’m looking for in the search box in the header while in the “my recipes” view. For example, here I”m looking for English style recipes:

    And here I’m looking for one of my IPA recipes:

    I created folders way back when by beer styles. Can just open a different folder to pick a beer recipe per style. As I create new recipes they build up in default and once in a while I clean it out with click and drag to their proper style folder. Just a suggestion.

    This is what I've started doing. Mind you I only have like 10 recipes at present but figured it would make things easier. Basically right now I have about half my recipes in default for the time being but I have a separate folder for my SMaSH Blonde, it's snapshots and anything I've built of it. As I come back around to other styles I've already done I'll probably add more folders

    Thanks! I swear I tried that. But apparently not. :)
