Your avatar should now be consistent across the calculator side.

If you change your avatar here, it will be a case of re-logging on the calculator to update the changes. This can be done at any time.

Added checks for groups.

Viewing the flavour list now has clickable links to each flavour + user link

Cntrl + left click to open in new tab


Added the user link to notes and removed “Public Notes” sub header

Adapting a recipe couldn’t be simpler.

Find the recipe you want to adapt.

Click the Action dropdown and select “Adapt This”


Once adapted, click the save button. Please change the title of the recipe to remove confusion.

Things to Note:

  • You need to be logged in to save the adaptation

  • You can adapt a recipe without being logged in

  • You cannot adapt an adaptation, instead you will be presented with a link to the original.


  • Recipe notes and steep time will be stripped when adapting.

Added a more visible indication that you are looking at a copy of an exisiting recipe.

Fixed the create page flavour selection to work when not logged in.

Added a new way to add / remove stash flavours.

Simply type in the search box and click the flavour you want to add

Your current stash flavours will be highlighted green, click them to remove them.

Enjoy :v:


Added “Save New” action to recipe update page.



For those of you who may not know, you can see recipes that use a particular flavour on the flavour page, as well as comment and set a rating, I’ll be tweaking this as time goes on.


Made the recipe details a little easier to read at a glance.



@anon96380778 There was no way for your flavour stash to update after changing your username so I have manually updated it :+1:


Recipes will now show your stash flavours as highlighted rows:



You didn’t have to do that brother! You made it simple enough for me to do it easily!


It would have added new ones under your new name, I need to add a check if I’m going to allow username changes


You can live search recipes using the following as keywords:

  • Flavour name
  • Flavour company name
  • Username

Added a check and notification for upvotes:
