The big O for these things is O(N ln B) where N is the number of recipes and B is the number of batches being made. That is, doing one batch each of five recipes is O(5 ln 5) but doing five batches of one recipe is O(1 ln 5). This is important to remember when planning out how much can be done before collapse...

I'm worried about how many data points it took to figure out that curve :)
