Default Home Brew Tracking Database

I am a very new home brewer.

I am also an avid and moderately proficient Microsoft Access developer. I have developed an Access app to track home brews. I'd be willing to distribute this to anyone interested. If there are some consensus ideas to make it better, I'd also be willing to make modifications.

Let me know if you're interested in taking a look at it.

Why don't you throw up some screen shots and pimp some features?

Just throwing this out there because you said that you are new to brewing, but have you checked out Promash, Beersmith or some of the other Brewing Software out there?

I was going to say the same thing. For $20-25, you can have all the features you wish your database did.. Hey, maybe yours is better, but it would help to check out the free trials anyway.

BrewHardware.com has a new website. Please check it out and let me know what you think!
New 100% Stainless Steel Heating Elements are IN! ULWD Ripple and 1500 watt versions coming soon
Chugger Pumps, Pump Kits, Camlocks, Sightglasses, Clear USA made Silicone Tubing, RIMS, Electric Install Parts, etc. Did you know we are also now a full service homebrew shop selling malt, hops, yeast (Wyeast), etc?

yeah, no offense to the OP whatsoever, but my guess is that a brewing program developed by someone who is, as he/she puts it, "very new to homebrewing", is bound to be missing a few things.

Aristocratic Ales, Lascivious Lagers

•Scottish 80/- •Sweet Stout •Roggenbier
.primary | bright:
98: Moss Hollow Soured '09 72: Oude Kriek 99: B-Weisse 102: Brett'd BDSA 104: Feat of Strength Helles Bock 105: Merkin Brown
.on tap | kegged:

I'd like to look, but am not sure what you mean about tracking. Are you building recipes? Keeping inventory? Something else?

On Tap: Whatever I just brewed (got sick of updating it)
