Default Scaling Recipes in BeerAlchemy

Can someone point me in the right direction? I have some 5 gallon recipes in BA that I would like to convert to 3 or even 2.5 gallon. Can't seem to find where to do this.

Thanks!

This is how I do it for version 2.0.
1. Make a profile for 2.5 or 3 gallons.
2. Make a copy of the 5 gallon recipe you want to scale.
3. Open the copy and under "profile", click on pull down menu and select the profile you want.
Hope this helps.

I miss the old version's method where you could scale a recipe & its volumes by percentage....

Thanks! I'll give that a try. I read a few posts about a scale button so that must have been for the older version. Seems like a step backwards for 2.0.

Looks like you can skip the duplicate Recipe step and handle the scaling at the batch level.

Good to know. I had not tried that yet.
