Epic Cloud Sync Fail I have used a couple different apps for homebrewing and this was the best one. For some reason though within the last month ALL my recipes have disappeared and when I try to retrieve them via the cloud sync nothing happens. Luckily all my recipes were saved on my laptop on QBrew, which I thought was cool because I could transfer to and from the app, but now Im going to have to hand type them into Beersmith. Was an awesome app, til my recipes disappeared. If this gets fixed I will give it 4 stars.
Great App!, but minor issue editing..... Love this app for easy recipe creation and management. Only issue i have is from a recipe editing standpoint. On Galaxy Note 4, viewing list of recipes with phone oriented vertically(not landscape) when attempting to select EDIT in an expanded recipe in list of recipes, it is near impossible to tap on EDIT without dropping down to middle of list of recipes due to track bar on side of screen. Must orient phone to horizontal (landscape), to be able to select EDIT within expanded recipe.
Simply awesome I use this app for every recipe. It calculates most everything for you. Allows you to update actual alpha acid values for each hop package and srm for grain. Includes a brew day timer and a bunch of other useful stuff. Could use a few other calcs and timers for mash but the darn thing is free and has ZERO ads. Thank you!
Good As programming goes, it's wonderful! As an application goes, it loses my recipes all the time. Whether I chose the sync option, phone option... I've used it on multiple phones for years and always have had this problem. Had it again this morning for a pumpkin ale I did last night.
Better ingredient naming and web syncing It'd be nice to have a site I can sync to where I can edit my recipes with a computer rather than phone. I tend to get frustrated with typos on my phone. I'd like to type out notes and recipes on a site, then have them sync to my phone and be readily available while I'm at the supply store. So far, the app is great. Most of the ingredients are available to make any brew. There are some outliers that can be include like Lactose, fruit extracts, or even be able to name my ingredient besides "Generic Ingredient."
Best brewing app option Use it every time I brew and create or want to add a recipe. I would like to be able to read my brewing instructions without going to the edit sections. Unable to cut off the alarm at the 00; 00 time mark. Otherwise it is everything you need to create and brew a great beer.
