Hey guys I couldn't find a simple app that would help me track my beer after brew day, so I wrote one, it turned out great.

BrewMinder will let you track your brews from fermentation through conditioning, print or email Toe Tags (labels for your carboys, buckets, boxes, etc) and your Brewery Pipeline, and remind you when you need to do your next step.

I just submitted it to the AppStore for review.

If you're interested please like the BrewMinder facebook page - http://facebook.com/brewminder

For updates - http://twitter.com/brewminder

Mind Your Brew!

@Bishop916 just iOS devices .. the next version will be extending it to be a universal app to take advantage of the iPad's larger screen size. If by some chance it's incredibly popular I'll do an Android version, but frankly I'm not a big fan of the Android development ecosystem.

Just bought it, actually pretty cool. There. Does seem to be an issue with the badge notification going a bit crazy. I have put in 2 beers and have a badge notification of 64. No idea what that means.

Thanks guys

I already fixed the notifications bug and if no other bugs pop up will probably submit version 1.1 early next week. This next version will let you print bottle labels, a feature that didn't make it into the first release.

Hey so can I request some interface changes and make some requests for features?

I'll assume yes

I like the sliders but can they be less sensitive? My fat fingers have trouble locking in the specific number and I end up bouncing back and forth...if not then I'd prefer the rolling numbers control. Yeah it's boring...

For setting dates can you use a calendar control? I'm more visual and would prefer to see the dates laid out like that. As I was back filling a schedule for a beer currently in progress I couldn't remember what the date was three Sundays ago so I had to switch apps - it would be easier and faster with a calendar control

Also, for setting the time periods for primary, secondary, etc. it would be cool to be able to also set by date in addition to the method by number of days/weeks/months as it is now.

How about adding a dry hop/infusion step, or two?

And what about adding an upcoming events list kind of like a task or to-do list so we can see everything coming up in one place?

And last but not least, on the opening page provide an option to go to reports directly for at least the pipeline?

Hope this isn't too much to ask for. Thanks for your consideration.

Thanks for the quick fix on the notifications. Anxious to see how the label feature works.
I would say that Cariscan is right on with his suggestions. I don't consider my fingers fat, but I was going back and forth with the slider as well.
I lie where this app is headed and see Cariscan's suggestions making it even better!

By all means keep the suggestions coming .. I agree with just about everything Carlscan26 said .. If there continues to be an interest I'll continue improving it

The label feature simply lets you email or print a 6 up set of round labels .. I have big plans for this feature but the 1.1 release I'm uploading tonight will just have round labels with the brew name and nutrition info .. future versions will have more label types and more customization ability.
