The further tabs show the selected recipe and yeast for this preparation, as well as optionally the current progress, an evaluation and the label.

By clicking on the delete button you can delete your preparations, recipes and yeasts. Caution: You can only delete a recipe or yeast if it is not referenced in any preparation!

Progress Tab

Here you can add/remove different actions.

Evaluation Tab

If you're finished with your preparation you should add an evaluation to it.
