Phew, so adding brewery details and members was a much bigger job than I anticipated. Still it's great to get it completed and released. At this stage this will really only be of use to commercial breweries where they want multiple users logging into their brewery profile.

Personal users can change the name of their brewery

I have published the first version of the brew settings page which allows users to exclude processes from their brew day page. E.g: exclude the Chill process from the brew day page as you are not interested in logging details

This allows you to streamline the brew day page and not worry about readings for processes that do not apply to your brewing day

I have published a test release of the new brew day feature. Login if you curently have one of the trial accounts. Navigate to the "Brewing Logs" page. and the little notebook icon just before the brew name. Have a play around with the feature and let me know what you think

This will allow you to easily log various readings during your brew day. The final release will allow users to turn off processes (e.g: I no-chill so don't need the Chill section), turn off individual readings (don't lauter as such with my system)

I have started adding tooltips to various areas in the website. These can be displayed by clicking on the Help icon in the top right hand side of the toolbar.

This will display pop-up tooltips explaining the functionality of various areas of the site

I've released some major changes to readings for the brew and ferment logs, but I'll do a separate post. All I'll say now is there's lots.

Updates:

  • Contact page is quicker to process
  • users can now enter their own id number for a brew log
  • Fixed a couple small bugs.

Recording a ferment log allows you to track ferment details, including final gravity, ABV, temperature, gravity, and pH readings.

Multiple ferment logs can be recorded for a single brew log if you are fermenting with different yeasts, experimenting with difernt dry-hop schedules, temperature experiments, etc.

Brew logging is the first step to recording any details into the system. All site features are built from an original brew log

There are fields for recording brew date, beer style, original gravity, volume, boil time, and notes. The notes can be as brief or verbose as you like.

When you are logged in, the front page provides a template csv file which you fill out with brew and ferment details to import into the website. This will allow quick importing from your current logging methods.

Match up the style to the sub-category id defined on the import page, and this will match up the style upon importing

The site uses the BJCP 2015 categories at present
