So no one has had this issue? I was wondering if I could send my bsmx file to someone to try.

Try locating the bsmx file on your hard drive and note location. Then try using the import feature under 'File' and see if the software will import the recipes.

If that doesn't work, email Brad, he is pretty responsive and should be able to help you out.

check your documents folder for the beersmith2 folder and try opening RECIPE#.bsmx where the # is a number from 1 to 5 (maybe more). try opening the latest dated one first, if that one doesn't contain your recipes and calendar, try the largest sized one

worked for me opening #4
