I forgot to mention the obvious workaround!
If you download BeerSmith 1.4 from the little "BeerSmith 1.4" link at the top of our web site, you can:
- Open your BeerXML file in BeerSmith 1.4
- Export your BeerXML file as a BSM file
- Import the BSM file into BeerSmith 2!
That will get you there - albeit you need BeerSmith 1.4 to do the translation for you.
