I would love to see as a part of the shopping list feature the ability to show changes needed because of hop AA% differences. So if the recipe calls for 1oz of a 4.5%, and all the have of that hop is a 7% what different amount should I buy.

try going into settings and selecting a weight unit and see if that effects anything

edit: also are the weights there in the brewsteps

Just a suggestion,

On the Timers page the spacing between Mash Timers and Boil Timers seems to large. I would think normally the amount of space needed for Boil Timers would be greater than that needed for Mash Timers. I usually only have 1 Mas Timer, and 3 to 6 Boil Timers. I have to scroll to see the Boil Timers wither lots of extra space above them between the Boil and Mash sections.

Maybe make the Boil Timers automatically be spaced X number of pixels below the last Mash Timer? This way extra space could be used for either Mash or Boil timers as needed.
