There are two ways you can add recipes into Ollie Ops.
- Option 1 is for users who use BeerSmith or ProMash to create recipes via a recipe uploader tool.
- Option 2 is to manually create recipes in the system.
Note: it is very important that the ingredients called for in the recipe match exactly the names and units of measurement of ingredients you already have in the system. Ollie Ops does NOT require you to have inventory to start a recipe, as such, if a recipe calls for an ingredient that doesn’t exactly match something you already have in inventory, it will assume you are calling for an ingredient that you don’t have inventory of and will draw down negative inventory. If you are using the uploader tool, it is recommended that you update your recipes in BeerSmith or ProMash to exactly match your ingredient names, prior to uploading the files (otherwise duplicate ingredients with slight variations to names will be added as new ingredients and this may cause some confusion down the road!)
How to Upload Recipes from BeerSmith or ProMash
In order to import your recipes into Ollie Ops, you want to ensure your files are saved in BeerXML format.
1. On the left hand side toolbar, click Recipes and then the Import button
2. Drag and drop a recipe, then click Import. Repeat this process for each recipe.

How to Edit, Clone, or Delete a Recipe

Tip: Cloning a recipe allows you to create another version of a very similar recipe. You can update the name and any properties without having to add every attribute from scratch.
