New "Stage" Option: Finish (Keg)

Post by TCBrewguy » Wed Sep 22, 2010 10:30 pm

I dry hop a lot of beers, especially APAs and IPAs. I almost always dry hop in the keg, which not an uncommon method of dry hopping for homebrewers. Any chance you could add a new stage option called "Finish (Keg)"? I know I could just just select Finish (Bottle), but that option was really intended for other ingredients (e.g., carb tabs).

I know this is an old thread, but this is a great idea!

Since stages are used to determine how ingredients are factored into the calculations it is preferable to limit the list to the major stages of the brewing process. However, the "Finish (Bottle)" stage is labeled too specifically as you have pointed out. In version 1.5.22 this stage will appear as "Finish (Storage)" allowing for the possibility of any storage method such as bottle, keg, or barrel.
