Nice piece of work. Any chance this could be ported to run on FreeBSD?

I don't see why not. Install Qt dev package and Phonon dev package, then download brewtarget source, then ./configure && make && make install.

I've tried that, and get this:

Code:
---Configure script for Brewtarget.
Unrecognized OS: freebsd
I tried this with BSD Make and Gnu Make

Tried this and liked it on my iMac... will try getting this onto my older powerbook... the original BrewPOOTER ( stuck in storage for a couple of years..so sad ).

Ah, my bad. If you open configure with a text editor and change line 290 from
Code:
return $^O =~ /linux/i;
to this
Code:
return $^O =~ /linux|freebsd/i;
then I bet it will work fine.

I've got a few questions after having read the manual and actually entering your proposed numbers in the software:

1. In the "making a mash" section, I'm entering 121 as a protein rest, but it always defaults to 130. Same thing for conversion; I enter 152 and it goes to 156. If I try to make changes, it always come back to these two numbers.

2. I can't seem to find the numbers that indicate to me the water temps and volumes to arrive to my specific mash temperature. I'm mostly doing infusion mashes at 1.5 qt/lbs.

3. I'm saving but am having a hard time retreiving my recipes. Seem kind of silly, but I've tried and nothing seems to be where it's supposed to be. Same thing for saving my equipment (mash tun and kettle). What gives?

I'm anxious to try it out on my system to see how well it works.

Good job!

You have to enter the units as well as the numbers, i.e. "121 F" instead of just "121".

You can see them either by clicking on a mash step and then clicking the edit button to the right (looks like pencil and paper) and then looking at the "Infuse temp" field, or just do what I do and press the "Brewday Mode" button at the top after getting through with the mash wizard. It'll be listed in easy-to-read fashion at the appropriate step.

Could you elaborate? Your recipes don't appear after you save them? They aren't in the drop-down list? Is this linux, mac, or windows?

Great! Got everything worked out. Problem was with the guy in front of the screen. It works beautifully...

Another quick question:

1. Anyway for me to figure out if all the grain I plan on using with a specific qt/lb ratio with fit into my mash tun? Or will the numbers that pop up will let me know. Right now I'm using the "Can I mash it" option on this website:

http://www.rackers.org/calcs.shtml

And is there anyway change the % of fermentables up or down while keeping your total grain amount the same? That would be great also!

Well, it took a half dozen more tweaks on my system, but your tip got everything started and we're running. Very nice. Thanks much.
