    Recipe suggestions would be unrelated to this feature request.

    Just wondering if there has been any traction on this? I am currently trying to decide what I am going to brew next. Looking at my recipes, and flipping back and forth between recipes, and inventory.

    Woops! Sorry for the delay everyone, here's a quick edit of what I was thinking.

    Added a mockup for improving recipe suggestions - Add a radio for searching only your recipes, and showing the % of recipe that are available as ingredients. Note: This should be reflective of what ingredient categories are being included. If you only have fermentables checked, then the % should only include the fermentables.

    If the users, and @Yooper, think that works, then I'll submit the requests for them.

    I don't oppose this at all. Not sure that I would use it, but as long as it doesn't interfere with any site functionality I say why not.

    Ditto that, although I'd still rather see the development time put toward late sugar additions.

    The late sugar additions are very close to being released!

    I’m not opposed to that, and I love being able to search only your recipes if you choose!

    Hmm interesting, I thought it'd be more useful for you, and those that keep a large inventory on hand.

    The thought was that you'd be able to see what recipes are ready to brew with what you have, all at once. I thought it would immediately sold your problem of having to open multiple tabs/windows and going back and forth to pick a brewable recipe.

    Is there any easier/better way to improve that workflow?

    Like yooper said, it's close. We've just got a couple things to iron out, once it's ready I'll post over on the beta forum for public testing before launching it to the live site.

    At a glance I am interested to see what I need to brew a recipe, as opposed to what I can brew based on what I have.

    That direction makes more sense. There are just too many combinations going the other way but consider this: The exact same grist can be used to make an American Lager, a Pils, a Helles, a Pale Ale, a Blonde Ale, Koelsch, a British Golden, a Saison....

    So for example you're looking at a specific recipe, and comparing the ingredient list to what you have in inventory and looking for what's missing, or what needs to be added to a shopping list?

    So just adding the inventory amounts to the recipe view should make that easier right?

    Yes, I don't do the shopping list thing, I just make a list on a piece of paper.
    I don't have to keep swiping the paper every 30 seconds to wake it up when I am gathering my purchases together at the brew shop.
    Not to mention that if I drop the piece of paper on a concrete floor it won't shatter like a phone might...

    Showing my age, I, too prefer paper. I generally print the recipe then check off things as I buy them.

    @Nosybear I've opened the late additions update for public testing. It's not 100% done, but I wanted to keep things open and get some more feedback from those interested in that feature to make sure what we're doing is supporting what they needed.
