What’s New

Version 1.15.1

Happy holidays! I hope you have a great 2021 filled with delicious coffee. Enjoy the new release!

* If the app was crashing, this should fix it. If you're still experiencing crashes please email me at brewtimerapp@gmail.com

(There’s a lot in this one, so remember you can always see these notes under “What’s New” in the app’s settings.)

Steps + Water
You can now specify how much water is poured for each step of a recipe. This makes it easy to get a quick overview of a recipe, but more importantly it unlocks Brew Timer’s new Pour Compass and Auto Adjustments features. More about those below!

Pour Compass
Ever finish your 60 second pour in 40 seconds? Oops. Fortunately Brew Timer is here to help! Now the app automatically identifies longer pours and computes checkpoints to help you along the way. As you brew, check the new Pour Compass to see what mass youshould be pouring towards. Once you get there, check the compass to see what’s next.

This is particularly helpful when you are getting familiar (or re-familiar) with a recipe, but I find it makes all my brews a bit more relaxed. Just edit any step where you pour water to get started. Here’s to a future full of perfect pours!

Auto Adjustments
You’ve dialed in your beans using 20g of coffee, but there’s only 15g left in the bag. Don’t waste it! Simply lock your coffee:water ratio, slide from 20 to 15g, and Brew Timer will automatically adjust the water poured in each step proportionally (either by volume only or by time too, your choice!).

This feature is best for smaller adjustments. If you brew recipes at 2-3x (or more) volume, I’d love to chat with you about it. Drop me a line! (My contact info is in the app’s settings page.)

Year in Review
With 2020 behind us, I thought it would be fun to look back on our coffee journeys. Head over to the app’s settings to see what yours looked like! If you’ve been brewing with Brew Timer since before 2020, you can also check out some stats from those years to see how things have changed.

Tiny Things
• Alongside the Pour Compass changes, the step editing screen got a fresh coat of paint. You can now flip between steps quickly, as well as discard your edits if you change your mind.
• Did you know that 1 mL of water weighs 1 gram? This is a handy fact for weighing water as you pour, so there’s now a note in the water unit settings pointing it out.
• Added a couple new Chemex recipes (for all sizes). Thanks to Arek for the suggestions!
• Added the ability to create a copy of a coffee if you rebuy a second bag of the same coffee. This makes it easier to track coffees that are mostly the same but have a different roast date or roast level. Thanks Joel for the idea!
• You can now long press the notes bar at the top of a recipe to quickly peek your last note. (iOS 13+)
• If you long press an entry in the Brew Journal, you can now view the recipe steps used for that entry. (iOS 13+)
• Updated all of the provided recipes to support Pour Compass and Auto Adjustments.
• Updated recipe sharing so you can share and receive recipes that specify water amounts on steps.
• If you were using Display Zoom in some cases, you would see black bars around the app. Those should be gone now.
• Fixed a bug where typing in a coffee mass in ounces didn’t save the right value.

Thanks for using Brew Timer!
I love to chat about the app (and coffee!) — shoot me an email at brewtimerapp@gmail.com. (Or Twitter @BrewTimerApp + Instagram @brewtimerapp)

Happy brewing!

Everyday brew companion

This app has been updated several times since my last review, so figured it was time to update. This is my favorite brewing app and the companion to my morning brew routine. I consider it essential. Stephen has added more brew methods and recipes recently, but my favorite addition was adding the ability to log which coffee you are drinking. It helps me keep track of when my bag is running low and any brew notes I have for that particular coffee. Keep up the good work!

Awesome app for coffee nerds

Fun app to track all the details associated w/ brews recipes (grind size, grinder used, coffee wt. etc.) and coffees (roaster, varietal, process, elevation etc.)

Makes sharing recipes with other coffee enthusiasts extremely easy.

Would love to see future updates that include the ability to snap pictures of coffee bags/containers as well as the ability to share brew recipes with all other users who are interested.

Thanks for the review! I’m thrilled to hear you’re having fun with the app :)

I think we’re on the same wavelength as far as future updates go, but I’d love to hear more details about what you want to see. Or if you’ve tried any great coffees lately—both would be👌. Shoot me a note. brewtimerapp@gmail.com

My favorite coffee timer I’ve tried

I’ve used this app pretty much every single day for most of this year and I’ve been very happy with it. I don’t see that changing anytime in the future, it gives me all the freedom to setup a timer the way I want. It’s simple yet super customizable to you and what you want. 10/10 I love this app.

This review made my day! If you have any suggestions or ideas feel free to shoot me an email—I’d love to chat. brewtimerapp@gmail.com

Thanks for leaving a review. Happy brewing!
