i've actually already done this and it seems to be working, just wanted to ask if you thought there might be any foreseeable problems.

Thanks so much for this software!
Perfectly fine. In fact, if you want to have some more fun, put brewtarget in a Dropbox.com folder and now you can have your recipes and stuff synched over multiple computers!

I just installed this on my Ubuntu machine. It seems to be behaving very well. I have not played with it much (it was literally installed five minutes ago) but it looks really good. I was despairing of ever finding a decent beer recipe calculator that would work on Ubuntu. So thank you very much.
This is great.

You guys, you have to check this out. This guy modified Brewtarget to send recipes to his automated brewing system. Skip to 6:00.

can you import db's other than recipes? like fermentables and such?

Default Problem with infusion volumes

After creating a recipe with brewtarget and performing a 2 step mash setup, the mash wiz tells me that my initial infusion is a little over a cup, and the second infusion is 1.5 cups, while my mash out is 5 gallons. How do I get mash wiz to fix this?

I have to say that so far I love this program!
Just brewed my AIPA today after forming the recipe on brewtarget. The color was dead on, and the actual OG was only .002 less than what brewtarget predicted!
Great program!

That was pretty cool.
Quick question about sparging. Does Brewtarget have a capability to calculate fly sparging? I didn't see it.

Same here on Mac.

Also, dumb question: when setting up the mash equipment, whats the difference between the mash volume and mash mass?

I'm using a 10 gallon rectangle cooler for my mash tun. I entered 10 gallons for the volume, but what would I enter for the mass?

Thanks!
