Overview and Editing

  • After you've created your recipe, you can come back to the recipe page to see and make changes.

  • While Brew Ninja doesn't support Versioning, you can duplicate the recipe and make the appropriate changes for the different versions of beers you may have.

  • On the overview page, you may also see the different SKUs already associated with the recipe (there's a tab for Product SKU next to Ingredients.)

Tips And Tricks

  • If you use Beer Smith or Brewer's Friend or any of the similar products to create recipes, you can use our recipe import feature to import the Beer XML files. Learn how to import recipes Here.

  • As you are adding ingredients if you don't see a material in the drop-down menu, check the material category again. A material's category must be marked "As ingredient" in order for it to show up on the recipe page.

  • Be sure to delete any duplicates if you are seeing more than one of a material

  • All ingredients in a recipe should have costs associated with them before beginning to brew.
