    There is an inconsistency in the naming of yeasts across the editor that you may not have noticed - or indeed care about - but if you ever download the data for your own use, as I do, then you may need to be careful. I shall use Fermentis Safale yeasts as that is where I found problems but it may exist elsewhere though I haven't come across it yet.

    Browse Yeast Table
    If you look at this table from the Browse menu you will see how Fermentis yeasts are listed. The Yeast name is listed with the parts of the name separated by hyphens. The Laboratory (Brand) is listed as Fermentis / Safale with a / separator.

    Recipe Editor
    If you create a recipe then the Yeast dropdown list uses the same list data so in the recipe you will see the names the same way - with hyphens separating the name parts.

    Recipe Export
    If you save a recipe and then do a Text export of the recipe you will get the Yeast name in a different format. Still with a hyphen but now the Brand name part has been truncated. (I suspect the background code splits at the first hyphen but that is a guess).

    Inventory
    Now go to your inventory (if you use it) and add an entry for the same yeast. What do you know? The Name of the same yeast in the drop down list is different again. This time the Fermentis part has gone and the most usual form of Safale - American Ale Yeast US-05 remains. (I personally would like the "Safale -" bit dropped too but that is another matter).

    Inventory Listing
    Go to the list view of the Inventory and, hey! What's this? Another version appears.

    Inventory Export
    Ok use the new (and excellent) export function and see what is listed now. The Brand name is the full Fermentis / Safale and the Yeast Name is the Safale - American Ale Yeast US-05.

    Man, you and your export...

    Thanks for the report Alan, I'm like 90% sure I already have this tracked but I'll double check and add this thread to the ticket.

    Hi, Sorry lol. I think most of it is ok as it all seems to tie up EXCEPT for the Recipe Export in text - I don't know about the other export types as I don't use them but I will take a look.

    I have a get round fix here in my Spreadsheet app so I can handle it. I just thought I'd point it out in case someone else was wondering where things were going wrong with their data - should they be mad enough to do what I do lol
