    I would love to put an electronic taplist on my kegerator, but I hate having to keep up with my beer logging in two places. Right now I'd have to migrate the brew stats into RaspberryPints or Taplist.io or Brew.Vision if I wanted something nice and pretty, but I'd also need to keep up with my brews here.

    The BrewSessions have a flag for when they are ready to drink, that could Be "On Tap" and trigger them to show up in your "Tap List"

    If the webpage was basic enough, I could just open a browser to that page and leave it open on a cheap tablet mounted to the kegerator. That way people could see all the stats on the brews I have going at that moment.

    I took a screenshot of the top of the brew session and moved the elements around a little, just to give a basic idea.

    I love RaspberryPints, and I am actually starting to see it used at local brew-pubs which is super cool. I've got two issues with that solution, first that I'm too lazy to keep up with data in two different places, and second that I'd have to buy additional hardware.

    If Brewer's Friend implemented a simple tap-list page I could just log into that in my garage and display the list on a device I already own.

    Howdy. This is an old thread, but I've recently been using Taplist.io and agree that BF could use a taplist just as described in this thread.

    Has there been any thought into implementing a taplist for Brewers Friend? I brew most of the beer that is on tap.

    Each beer already has a "ready to drink" and "all gone". Ready to drink could signal that it's either on tap, or could be on tap, and then be displayed on a screen.

    I used taplist.io, but they started charging $84 a year for anything over 4 taps.

    I'm not sure what the status of this request is, as it predates my involvement, but I'll check in with the owners and developers to followup.

    @Nosybear my assumption is that it would be available under the services/device integration just like all the other smart systems. This will keep it out of the way for those that aren't using it.

    The request has been approved by one of the owners. I can't make any promises on when or if it will be available, but we're looking into it!

    Thank you! This would be amazing. I think you already have the beer information in the database for brewed beers, so it's more of a how to format/display on a public webpage. Hopefully we'll have the ability to add other beers on tap easily, if we get them from a friend or a brewery.
