Brewer’s Friend News and Recipe Giveaway!

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

Hey there Brewers!

In this edition of the Brewer’s Friend Newsletter, we have a special announcement in addition to covering some of the latest features and additions to the site.  So grab a beer and let’s check out what’s new.

New Features and Improvements

We’re always working to improve our calculators, recipe builder, and apps, so you can make the best beer possible.  Here are some of the latest improvements we’ve made this month:

  • In the Other Ingredients section on the Recipe Builder, added a unit selection for the time field.  Now you no longer need to convert your week long dry hop time into minutes.

  • The Mash Calculator now offers the ability to enter strike water volume directly, not based on ratio

  • Added a Hop Uitilization Multiplier on the Recipe Builder, so you now can scale non Whirlpool/Hopback hop utilization by a recipe-wide factor

  • Added Gallons as an available volume unit in the Mash Calculator

  • Restricted Recipe Search Results to valid ABV values to avoid surfacing invalid recipes

  • Added Rakau and Opal hop varieties to the Recipe Builder ingredient list

  • Built a new calculator for switching between LME and DME while maintaining gravity (http://www.brewersfriend.com/lme-dme-conversion-calculator/)

  • Fixed a bug in Brewer’s Friend Windows App to enable Brew Day functionality regardless of the units selected

  • Added Brix unit option in hydrometer temperature correction calculator (http://www.brewersfriend.com/hydrometer-temp/)

  • Fixed bug in Recipe Export to HTML function where hop headings didn’t match the data in the table

  • Added Target Residual Alkalinity to advanced stats in Recipe Builder, based on Palmer’s How to Brew formula
