I've posted a few Beersmith recipes, and I find it to be a bit time consuming. So I knocked together a quick template that adds a VBulletin-formatted recipe to the drop-down menu that lets you select the view. That way, you can 'select all', 'copy', the whole thing, paste into a post here on HBT, and get a formatted recipe without a lot of goofing around.

The idea is that you can get a BeerSmith Recipe into Vb forums without having to save text files and muck around with the formatting. The template file is attached, so if other Beersmith'ers want to have at it, go ahead.

Is this a useful feature? See below, and let me know:

Cool, next time I have a recipe to input to beersmith I'll try this format and see how it goes.

Yes,

How do I get it into Beersmith?
I've copied it to the template folder but it doesn't show in the drop down.

You have to add the report to beersmith before it can use it. Go to the Tools menu, select Options, then the Reports tab. Use the Add button to add the report template, restart Beersmith, and you should be set.

Obviously, the template can be modified.
