Log all your hot side readings in an easy to use brew day interface, switching through the various processes as your brew day progresses.
Switch off the processes that don't apply to your brew process
Design templates with readings or tasks you want processed on certain days of the ferment.
Drag and drop the standard readings, or create your own custom items.
Marking a ferment started automatically creates tasks for each of the readings defined in the allocated ferment template.
You can also create brewery events that aren't attached to a brew or ferment log.
The head brewer can add and remove team members from the brewery.
Once team members are allocated, they can be allocated an entire brew, ferment, or certain tasks from the calendar.
Brewers Chronicle is designed to provide the same experience across any device. No separate app to install on your phone or tablet.

The iSpindel hydrometer is a WiFi based hydrometer/thermometer and relies on being able to access a WiFi network with access to the Internet. It transmits readings directly to the receiving service.
It requires a few more steps to integrate into Brewers Chronicle that the Tilt device, but at 1/2 cost, it is more affordable for home brewers
The Tilt hydrometer is a bluetooth based hydrometer/thermometre and relies on a Bluetooth device to receive the readings, and then transmit them to the receiving service.
This is most easily achieved by using an Apple or Android device with their app installed. They also provide an app to install on a Raspberry Pi which is a cheaper way to go than a phone.
At this stage, the API offers Tilt and iSpindel digital hydrometer integration. Setting these devices up to use the API, they will feed readings into the ferment log you allocate.
Forgot about manually recording temperature and gravity readings.
The initial release of the dashboard displayed the active ferment graphs for temperature and gravity readings.
The next release has two new sections: the 20 latest readings for active ferments, and upcoming boil sessions
With the initial release of the dashboard completed, it's now time for something fun: integrating the Tilt hydrometer into BC. Tilt measures gravity and temperature readings and will automatically transmit them to the relevant ferment log, thus relieving you of the tedium of collecting these readings.
The dashboad allows users to quickly monitor ferment progress using the graphs, record temp and gravity readings against these ferments. You can also review the last 20 readings recorded across all brew days and ferments.
Lastly there is a section listing upcoming brew days, with required ingredients if you attach a beer.xml file with the brew day entry.
