Re: Brewday / Hop Timers

Timers, especially cascading timers setup in BTP on the desktop would be awesome. I do agree with Jeff crom several posts ba k that running the timers on BTPConnect makes more sense, especially when all brewday input use cases are on the BTPConnect device app and ceed data back to the desktop app sa...

Re: Stage drop down choices.

Good idea. Both would be helpful. I recommend prioritizing HLT over a hopback stage though as a wider range of recipes and brewers couuld benefit from it.

Re: Android version

I'm revisiting BTPConnect during my next brew to see how well it funtions as a brewday app. I'll update this topic with any specific use cases that come up.

Re: Whirlpool stage

This would be a nice feature to account for the time, but also to account for the temp drop, i.e. heat lost to radiation without any heat input. Then you'd have a planned starting temp for your wort chilling stage and be better able to predict chilling time too.

Re: Android version

Doing a brew today and really, really, really wish I had an Android version of BTP. I have the laptop inside the house running BTP and I'm out on the deck doing a mash and running in and out is real pain the A%$. My Galaxy S3 is in my pocket and it would be much better to lookup steps, run timers, t...

Re: Allow user to change temp for "volume @ temp" valu

Thanks Jeff for the well considered feature and reply. I see your point about the small temperature differences and what you implmented definetly fits the spirit and intent of my request. I hope many others find it useful.

Re: Allow user to change temp for "volume @ temp" valu

This will be a very a useful feature. I'm a bit surprised that it was only implemented at 3 predetermined temps though. While those temps are close to what I'll likely use, the ability to edit a default temp in the popup would be a bit more useful. For example, after sparging being able to edit a 16...

Re: New calculator utility: volume change as a function of t

Thanks for the feature in 1.5.24. It's exactly what I was asking for. I'll use it every time I brew!

Make dog cookies!

I make dog cookies from my spent grains every couple of months. The remaining spent grain goes in the compost pile. All the dogs in my family and neighborhood love them. It's easy enough for a non baker like me. If you can mash you can do it. Just google "spent grain dog cookies" for any of several ...

I agree that this would be a useful feature, especially for those of use that want to document and track all the critical path times in a brew day using the schedule in BTP. On a fundamental level it makes no sense the the schedule should be limited just the mashing steps as opposed to all the steps...

Allow user to change temp for "volume @ temp" valu

There are 2 places in the main page of the interface where I can enter or allow the software to calculate a certain volume at a specific temperature. During a normal brew day I typically need to these volumes at a different temp. These 2 places are: Kettle Volume @ 212 °F: This is the pre-boil volum...
