Version 1.04 Launched, Copy and Brew Log

Monday, January 30th, 2012

The latest release is now live, which includes:

  • Recipe Copy feature activated.  Now you can make copies of your recipes or other recipes that have been shared by others.
  • Brew Log feature setup which allows you to record gravity readings, how much volume you collected, tasting notes, etc.
  • When starting a Brew Session you may make a snapshot of the recipe (which is essentially a copy of the recipe tied only to the Brew Session). That way if you change the recipe later on, or you need to make a minor edit for just that brew session you know EXACTLY what you brewed.
  • The Brew Session page allows you to change the current phase of the brew. The phases are Planning, Brewing, Primary Fermentation, Secondary Fermentation, Conditioning, Ready to Drink, and All Gone.
  • Mash steps now visible for Partial Mash style recipes on the Recipe Editor.
  • BIAB brew step profile created.
The next release will include automatic calculation of ABV and Brew House Efficiency through the Brew Log.
We encourage users to share their recipes and make them searchable.  In an upcoming release, we will change the reward we are giving now to early adopters and require users contribute and share at least a few recipes to be eligible. Right now anybody who signs up is fully eligible.
Here’s to good beer, health, and enjoyment of life!

Thought for the month: Give a man a beer, he wastes the rest of the day. Teach a man to brew, he wastes the rest of his life.

  2. Hey, I just wanted to say that I really enjoy your recipe builder and the rest of the features that your site holds. Thank you for doing this.

    Question, I made a couple of recipes searchable… when I search for recipes, all I find is all grain recipes. Is there something I’m doing wrong in my search? I’m still an extract brewer who’s still fairly new to HB.

  3. Recipe search is not enabled (or coded) yet. The search feature only looks at blog posts. Sorry for the confusion. Recipe search is on the way.

  4. I just added my first recipe and the yeast I used was not in the list. I didn’t see a way to add one. I used Wyeast 1945 NB Neobrittania. Did I miss something? Thanks.

  5. Hi,
    Thanks for bringing this to our attention!

    We will add 1945 in the next release. Turns out there are a few Wyeast specialty strains that are also missing from the list.

  6. The new Brew Log feature is really awesome. my written down notes are a freaking mess and this allows me to have them housed for safe keeping and reference.

    Thanks again for all you do to keep this site free.
