Nice, I'm going to have to have a play about with this.
I was considering paying out for the new Beersmith but the US centric water calculator and the absolute mess of a UI has so far stopped me from doing so.
Does it also have BM profiles for the short malt pipes (I have a 20L but trying to brew smaller batches more often to improve my beer without killing my liver)?

I'm new to brewing and as a part of my learning curve I'm testing Beersmith, Brewer's Friend and Brewfather and I have to say that I'm in favor to the Brewfather so far... I really like the design, it is easy to operate and also integration with gadgets like BrewPi or Tilt etc.. Well, let's see how I go but thanks for sharing! Definitely a fan so far.

Thanks!

Let me know if you miss anything! And if you decide for one of the other, be sure to let me know why so I can improve! :-)

Yeah, for sure! As said, I'm new to it but highly engaged, so give me week or two and will get back to you ;)

One thing I can think of - would consider - add a 'bin' for the deleted recipes and 'undo' for editing your batch etc... - you never know, you may do a mistake and delete something (I kind of like how google doc operates hence why I like the 'undo' and 'bin' functionality that also track your changes in time...).

Looks like a very nice software. Thank you!
Is it possible to create folders (in recipe dashboard) to have a cleaner view?
It would be nice to have "search" field visible after scrolling (similar to freeze cell function in xls.)

and +1 for undo and trash folder :cheers:

Click the sort button in the recipes page, choose First tag, then you can organize your recipes by tags, sort of like folders.

So I'm experimenting more and more with it and really like it and I think I'm going to stick to it ;) Few more suggestions..

- The profile of equipment should have a button - option - to update all profiles used in recipes. I mean - I could create let’s say 10 recipes with my Braumeister 20L profile. Later on, I will find out that some values were not precise and I will update it in the ‘equipment’ tab. I should have an option to update automatically my recipes that already have this equipment in it)
- When I am in the recipes tab - would be great If I can update the kg/ g right from this view (so I do not have to tap on each item) - like have a little up and down arrows
- Would be great to have ‘Undo’ button so you can fiddle around and see what the change does to the scores but you can always easily revert it back + have a keyboard shortcut (Ctrl +Z :)
- Incorporate reading from Speidel’s GÄRSPUNDmobil to the Utility

Adding one more - would be great to highlight fields you can edit (e.g. in batches - like light yellow or something) vs. fields that are just calculated and you can't edit it at all (stats in brewing etc..)
