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.

That sure was easy, thanks for the tip!

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.
