    Hi guys, I poked around to see if this was already something that was reported. This happens occasionally, mostly I've noticed if I link a mash/water chemistry entry to a recipe, then change the recipe it might show differing amounts. Every so often (i can't seem to reliably duplicate it) the total water and strike water entries are replaced with 5.5 (which is the batch amount). See attached images.

    Let me know if I can provide anything else, thanks!

    Thanks for the report. When you go back to the recipe, do you make sure to always click “update”? What about when you go the water calc again, after making changes, do you link it and save/update?
    If you could tell me the steps to get this error so I can recreate it, I can put in a ticket for this.

    This time around, I didn't change anything on the recipe. It had been about 3-4 weeks. I went into the recipe edit mode and went right to the water chemistry so I could update my source water (new water test!) and I noticed that the total and strike water amounts were changed.
