Fwiw, when I keg a batch I use the keg Notes field to record the recipe name...

Agreed, day_trippr - that's how I do it now. But it doesn't carry through when I tap it. So if I've got a few kegs cellering and I pull keg 5 out to tap it and select that on the tap list and it pulls up a different beer than I was expecting, then I know to look into it. As it stands now, unless I check the notes, I could tap that keg thinking it was beer A, when really it was beer B, but nothing in the system would validate that.

Maybe I'm just lazy...

Right now, the only time I can define what beer is in a keg is when I tap it. I have 6 kegs and 3 taps, so I can't easily define which recipe is in which Keg, other than typing it into the notes section for each keg - which is fine, but that doesn't cary through when I go to tap it.

Seems like the keg management page - where I switch the keg from "needs cleaning" to "clean" to "conditioning" once I add the beer - would be the right place to show what I put in that keg. Then, when I go to tap, I just select a keg # and it brings the beer recipe with it.

To me, this is far more logical than trying to remember which beer is in which keg #, and then going to the tap page and selecting a recipe and a keg. This presents the possibility of selecting a non-matching pair as there's nothing that ties the keg to a recipe.

Just a thought,
It would have to be an addition to the code to make it more of a "keg tracker".

Currently, the system is designed to be little more than a fancy list. The only reason the keg information is even there is for the volume monitoring (and even then, its not really needed).

My plan once the holidays are over and life is a little less hectic and I have a chance to work on the projects around the house *I* deem necesary are to sit down and look at the Rpints code again (I haven't really done that since we pushed out V2) and see where things can be cleaned up a bit and simplified and then start working on finalizing some of the things I've been working on like the untappd integration and RFID stuff.

I also need to sit down and work out some of the other items on the list and figure out where to go from here....
