Wish you guys would fix the hops summary. That way it shows the total weight of each hop you're using in the batch. Say

Total

3oz Centennial
2oz Cascade
1oz Chinook

That was a much appreciated but now missing feature :(

Is this a valid error message?? I have been noticing a lot of posts taking a long time to cycle through and appear after clicking "Post Reply" so are these issues part of the updates??

No. It's lightning fast for me in the forum.

What browser/device are you using? How are the recipes, etc loading for you?

Windows 10 build 17134, Right now I'm on an older Toshiba laptop but I have been experiencing this slow load issue on my Asus laptop as well. It was a weird looking error message I thought.
