Updated with the new BCJP 2015 style guidelines, and now featuring Mosaic hops (along with a bunch of others too!).
Fixed some minor text display issues and funky iPad landscape text entry issues on the stats and notes pages.
Ratings and Reviews
Overall a good app
I haven't used any other app for brewing. This one had good reviews, so it is what I went with. Overall it is a good app and does what I need it to do for what I'm doing. There is one 'issue' I'd like to see addressed... I usually have more than one batch going at any given time and I reference others while working on one (or more). Once you get inside (beyond) the main page, you can't tell which recipe you're looking at. For instance, once in the style, malts, notes... page, you can't see which recipe you're looking at. When bouncing between several recipes it can get confusing and I sometimes put notes in the wrong recipe. If the app would simply highlight the recipe you're looking at in the left column, you could tell for sure which recipe you're working with. Simple fix. Otherwise you have to back out to the 'main' page of the recipe to see, at the top of the page, which recipe you're on. Another 'nice to have' would be if you could import a recipe straight off one or more of the home brew sites (AHA would be nice) since they are all in the same format on a given site. Maybe you can and I just don't know how. Kind of a PITA having to type in all the stuff someone already typed in on their site. RDWHAHB
Simple and Effective
It's easy to log and track recipes and sessions. It really requires very few clicks. I have tried a few other apps and others take much longer to add new recipes. I'll up to 5 stars when they add a timer ;). Download and try with 5 slots for free so nothing to loose to give it a go.
Go to app for brewing
Although you can only keep 5 beers in the free version, you have the option to export via email or printing to keep 5 of your latest brews. App contains everything you need to brew from start to finish. Input grain bill, hops and yeast and it will determine your output including water needed to brew to hit your 5gal target.
By far the best free app for brewing.
