    I think it would be interesting if you can add Quantity to the Gots section of Beers. Would be almost an inventory checker of your cellar as well as a nice way for others to see if you have a good stock on a certain beer and would be interested in trading.

    Totall agree. I thought the same thing when I officially registered and was logging my Gots. Thought it would be a helpful detail.

    I've seen some profiles where they have an Excel spreadsheet on Google docs and then post a link to it. Much easier to update than going beer by beer.

    Agreed, seems like a simple fix with either an extra column or drop down box.

    It would also be helpful if you could make note of what vintage you have.

    It's a good idea, which has been discussed before along with adding dates to keep track of vintages.

    We plan on looking at extending Hads, Wants and Gots during the site redesign.

    I was going to make this suggestion, but looked around and found this post right away. I think it would be cool to be able to use BA as a method to inventory my beers (I currently use excel) - and adding quantity would really help with this - any chance this might happen? Cheers.

    Edit: Thanks Todd, I didn't see your post until I submitted mine - you're always very responsive; much obliged.
