New UI is broke things! With the latest version 4.0.10, the refractometer calculator is completely unusable. It hangs or outright crashes. This is one of my most used calculators. EDIT: Stuck in manual mode. I can't get a session started. I start a session and nothing happens. No steps or timers offered. Just connection to the controller showing temperature and access to heat and pump. There is NO instructions on how to use the new app. Will muddle through on brew day but complete FAIL!

The app might be useful for people who want to enter into beer brewing competitions. Otherwise, it's far too much work to be worth the effort. For example, it demands specific information about the malted barley that I couldn't even get from the manufacturer. That makes it very hard to use. I can't even fill out the details about final gravity and stuff like that without plugging in the grain father and connecting to it. Also, I don't appreciate the demand for full time location permissions.

Intuitive. Easy to use. Looks great. Good selection of community recipes. Great articles. A few issues every now and again with speed when you are typing values in the boxes for ingredients and results. Just be patient. Otherwise makes creating recipes for brewing easy. Would love it if the temperature trend for each batch was saved to tour brewday recipe to be reviewed.
