Unfortunately as Bum said all you can do is type the thing in.

PITA especially when you also have to add the grains in that BM don't have but thats life.

Brewmate files are XML files where as Beer smith are BMS files ..I think.

yes thanks truman, they are xml files, but i have put beer recipes into beersmith before but cant remember how i got them in there, didnt type them in, so i will fiddle around and see what happens.

Beersmith recipes can be exported in BeerXML format and opened in other software that use the format.

So you've put recipes from the recipe database into beersmith before without typing them in?

That would be good to know because then we could export them to XML to use in Brewmate. Let us know if you remember how you did it. I cant see any other way but typing them out.

How did you do it? Copy and paste direct into the XML file? Would that work?
