    my recipe page porter low abv no longer has any steeping grains section, just isn't there! saved recipe 2 nights ago all fine, tonight all steeping grains gone, no way to get them back. often I'll save, come back later to discover double/tripple entries. found 7 copies of my yeast once! using amazon fire tablet silk browser and pc with firefox.

    That's not good! If you still have the recipe available, could you make it public and post, or send it to @Yooper and myself in a PM so we can take a look?

    It’s a private recipe, but I can log in as you to take a look. The thing is, if I do that I could change things in your recipe inadvertently. Is it possible that you can copy it and try to recreate what happened? (And then grab a screenshot?)

    I cannot see any reason for the steeping grains to vanish, and we definitely need to fix it, but without being able to actually see what happened, I”m stuck.

    Hi Yooper, thanks for the help! Sure, go ahead and log in. I just hope to get my steeping grains drop down box back so i can finish out recipe. If the entire recipe disappears that's no problem, i remember it pretty well... just want that option back in place. I should have some free time later tonight so if you get the grain choices box back I will see if i can recreate the problem and will send screenshot. Hopefully it was a one time glitch and will never happen to anyone again... yes it was strange!

    I'll say that when i was working on it I looked it over, all was OK before I saved. Came back later and saw the steeping grains were gone completely. only other thing i recall is i had been changing the boil amounts a bit to see how it changed amounts of hopping. Edit: ALL other recipes were uneffected.. Thanks again! Cheers!

    That’s really weird- here’s my screenshot of an extract batch recipe starting:

    Well, i I'm sorry for the trouble but problem solved! In my screenshot you'll see my steeping grains are back! Seems i accidentally clicked on all grain. But after saving my recipes page still showed steeping grains and extract method later that morning. Next day gone! I think we can chalk it up to my browser loading an older page from memory. But fixed, thanks!

    Glad to hear it! I was stymied since I couldn't recreate, and I never thought about the AG/Extract changing the steeping grains (but of course it would). Thanks for updating us on the issue and letting us know how it worked out.
