Homebrew Competitions / Mash-Out 2014 Filling Up Fast
« on: January 02, 2014, 11:41:13 AM »
The Mash-Out turns 13 this year. Yes, that's right it's become a snotty teenager hellbent on making Miley Cyrus look like Mitt Romney. It's getting a tattoo, a piercing on it's junk, and listening to music you just wouldn't understand. Jeez get a clue, people!

Right now, we're close to 3/4 full, so get pull yourself out of your new year's coma and sign up now before it's too late to enter one the nations's largest, most competitive homebrew competitions.

More info: http://mashout.org

Deadline is 1/17 and entries are capped at 1000.

And no, Mash-Out won't be taking out the trash. It's too busy texting pictures of that piercing, which may be infected.

We'll need judges too. We've had to turn away volunteers the last few years, so sign up early.

Do you need an app for this or can you watch from your computer?

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Free iPad Beer Recipe App
« on: June 29, 2013, 09:21:12 AM »
It's version 1 of the recipe formulation. I was trying to keep it simple and present everything on one screen. 

As a long time all grain brewer, there's just a few things I care about with regard to recipe formulation:

1. hitting my target gravity
2. calculating IBUs
3. notes on yeast & ferm temp

I used to use ProMash, but was tired of keeping an old Windows box around for that. In ProMash I never used any other recipe features.

I wrote BrewBot for what I needed and wanted.

Let me know what features/tweaks you'd be interested in seeing.

General Homebrew Discussion / Free iPad Beer Recipe App
« on: June 28, 2013, 08:56:34 AM »
I've released a free beer recipe formulation app for the iPad.

I've been homebrewing since the late 90s and I've won multiple BOS awards around the country, AHA Mead Maker of the Year, and the Midwest Homebrewer of the Year.

I've taken just the elements I need as a brewer to make a simple, easy to use app that focuses only on the elements you need to put together a recipe.

Check it out here: http://itunes.com/apps/brewbotlite

Can't make it this year, so I'm wondering if anyone is streaming the awards from Philly?

With less than a week to go, we're almost at the entry cap.

Enter ASAP.

12
Only one week to go to the entry deadline. The entry cap of 1000 is 3/4 full.

I forgot to mention that one of the gold medal beers, not necessarily the BOS beer, from this year's UMMO will be chosen by Kris England of Pour Decisions Brewing Company to be brewed professionally at Pour Decisions.

I threw caution to the wind and spent 99 cents on the app. Looks like it would be handy. I recommend correcting the typos that crop up throughout the app (such as "Volumue" ... "Refractomemter" ... "Original Gavity" ... "Fahrenhiet") -- it will improve the credibility of your product.

Typos have been noted and corrected. A new release is pending and in the review process, which takes about 2 weeks.
