My Bru'n Water Tutorials - new links
« on: May 25, 2016, 01:36:19 PM »

Apologies for those that have previously book marked the walkthroughs I did on Brungard's Bru'n Water free and subscriber edition spreadsheets. I recently rebuilt my Wordpress site and the perma-links have changed.


If you are not aware, there are significant feature differences between subscriber and free editions, that are worth a donation! You can learn more about Bru'n Water at https://sites.google.com/site/brunwater/. I am not affiliated with Bru'n Water, and have no affiliations or sponsorships at my blog.

You could set redirects from the old links to the new in your .htaccess with very little effort.

I did do that, but I am still seeing the occasional 404.

Of course, I just updated the free version of Bru'n Water to include an interface that is more like the supporter's version and it has also had the form controls removed so that the program will work on more platforms. The program has been stripped down to the barest minimum so that new users are less likely to be overwhelmed and will use the program. The free version comes in a single program that includes settings for US and SI units.

Check it out and let me know if you find bugs!

May I ask what the minimum donation is to get the subscriber addition?

Hey Martin, do you know if the new form works in Google docs? I'd tried the older one and it mostly worked, but the style selection drop down didn't. So I couldn't set a water profile. Not horrible, as I could research that stuff elsewhere but it would be nice to have.

If not, that's fine! I know most people have Excel. I'm just an outlier.

LibreOffice is an open source office suite that you can download and install for free.  You can run Bru'n Water in it.

I've never had good luck running my Excel stuff through sheets. Now that Martin has eliminated the macros you should have a better time but the conditional formatting will not work.

I also use Bru'NWater through LibreOffice at Martin's suggestion. It seems no different than when I ran it in excel for the first year I had it. It did not look right or show me everything in Google Sheets, but the free Libre Office is the way to go if not excel

Thanks all!  I'll try out Libre Office on my desktop. I'm generally using a Chromebook for 90% of my computing these days, which is why Google Docs is attractive to me. It's light, stay charged all day, and I don't mind when I accidentally dump it on the floor. Which is often.

I spoke with Martin the past few days and ran the free version through Excel for the tablet and it seems to work great.

The tablet version of Excel only requires that you create a Microsoft account. The functionality is limited and no where near on par with the desktop version but allows you to run the free version of Brun water with little or no issue and the original formatting and function.

I created my brewing spreadsheet in desktop Excel specifically for use with Excel for iPad.
