Default Brewing Site For Folks Who Just Want To Take Notes

Hi guys,

I have tried the big three options out there - Beersmith, ProMash, and Beer Tools - and I've found all of them to be a bit too much for me. Sure, I'm looking to easily track my brewing process, but I'm not looking for the pro features of these apps and I found that I was doing way too much clicking and not enough paying attention to my brew pot. So I launched http://brewnot.es as a tool for myself to simply track my process, keep track of recipes, and take notes how I wanted to take notes (not how the software forces me to). I was hoping to find a few folks on here that feel the same about the pro apps and would like to use my site for free?

Since its all online, you can take notes from any computer on the web, your recipes are still there when you drop your laptop, and you can even edit a recipe from the brew shop on your phone when you find out they don't have the hops you were counting on

Just hoping this tool might be helpful to some folks and would really appreciate any feedback you might have on the user experience.

Thanks guys!
-Ryan

Hi Ya'll,

Just wanted to keep the community up to date. I've added the ability to create new versions of your recipes (while being able to revert back to older versions or to look at what you've changed) and the site will now email you to remind you that a next step is upcoming (for instance, it will be time to rack to secondary tomorrow). Would love to get some feedback from anyone who can test the site out for me. Love to make it a more useful tool for us all!

Thanks!

Looks really good. Once I'm more familiar with my set up and readings and don't need all the bits and pieces, I'll start using it

This looks pretty cool. I like the simplicity of the site and the way you keep track of brew sessions. I'm a pen and paper guy myself, so this appeals to me. Hope it works out for you. I registered to check it out. I'll give it a shot next brew day.

so i sign up and didnt like it, i would like to see pull down list of common ingredients that i can amend or modify to use for the recipe (with color, gravity ect), then i could go from there. I like beersmith a lot, i think its fantastic software but i would like to see something better, no luck so far

The OP said he's not into the whole BeerSmith idea. He's going for simplicity. Drop down menus , color , etc. is everything he seems to be trying to avoid. This isn't competition for BeerSmith. It's more like competition for a scrap piece of paper you might write a note or two on. Glad to hear you enjoy BeerSmith though. Keep brewing.
