Hey, first off, I've got to say that I brewed 2 batches in the past 2 weeks, and BTP is Cadillacing for me.

One feature that I would find useful is the ability to calculate the thermal expansion of your wort. I can imagine "Thermal Expansion" as a tab in the "Calculators" window, where you select your current temperature and volume and then see how that volume changes at other temperatures.

This would be awesome just for estimates with water, but if you wanted to get fancy, you could calculate either for water or worts of various SG. Although I haven't done these calculations for anything but water, so I'm not sure how much they vary for various wort concentrations.
