Finally, being able to print out a brew-day action plan would be awesome. As it stands, it is necessary to flip back and forth between the recipe sheet and brewday sheet to determine mash volume and temperatures. Anyway, really great stuff, so thanks!
I just enter all my numbers, vols, additions and times into the Brewday notes part, and print that off.

That's a good way to do it. I typically just check back to the Recipe Sheet for anything I need. However, I do like the idea of adding the mash/sparge volumes and desired temps to the brewday sheet and will do so when I get a chance.

One thing to keep in mind for anyone using this. You can set your print area when attempting to print (I think that is probably what Tim is doing). I'll play with this a little more as I add these items to make sure it's set up for those that want to print it off. Not sure if I set a print area if that will map over to your computer or not, but I'll give it a shot.

Looking forward to giving this a shot! Thanks CP!

Quick question: By what method do you guys integrate this spreadsheet into your record-keeping process?

I know some folks print off the Brew-day sheet that they could then stick into a binder. How about recipe workup...are you printing that up too?

Any suggestions if you wanted to keep electronic records? Maybe for each recipe or brew-day you save a separate version of the spreadsheet after filling in all of the relevant #s?

Just wonder how to get the most of it! Thanks....

Good question.

I created a brew folder and have a folder within that folder for each style of beer that I brew (APA, Porter, Kolsch, etc...). You would do a "save as" and name it for that particular beer for each beer you brew and save it in that style's folder. That allows me to have a detailed record of every beer I brew while still having the original program for a new beer.

Hope this helps and if you have additional questions please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks! That is pretty much how I figured you would do it.

Hey All,

I'm going to begin working on this thing again in the near future. I've already upgraded a couple of small items and will integrate some of the suggestions in the thread here as well once I get back at it.

Any feedback from users out there? Running into any challenges or issues? Anything you really like that you'd like to see expanded? If I spend time expanding the Designing Beers tab would you find it useful?

I'd love to get some additional thoughts on possible improvements you'd like to see if you have any. I don't have a lot planned at this point other than a few minor upgrades/additions. If there are any ideas out there I'd like to hear them.

This, as it is now, is spot on. I really don't see how you can make it better, but thanks for trying.

I run all my beers through this, Beer Alchemy forMac and the iPad version, as well as brew target, and your numbers are what I check the others against.

Thanks for all the time and effort

CP - which version is the latest? The one in the first post is a dead link, and the one in your signature is old? Thanks!

Justin

Hey Justin - The most recent thread for the workbook is here - http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f84/cps-...rkbook-260911/

However, that is probably old at this point as well. I'm in the middle of building a new house, but should be in by the end of February. Once we get settled I'm going to put the finishing touches on the latest upgrade.

I can actually email you the latest upgrade. It's not finished quite yet, but it's fully functional. Just need to do some maintenance/cleanup/minor additions to it before I publish it. Shoot me your email again via pm and I'll send it off to you.

So its showing 4.13 oz of priming sugar for my 5 gal Cali Pal Ale. I usually drop a 3/4 tblspn into each bottle prior to filling. So trying to figure out how much of 4.13 oz needs to go into 48 12oz. bottles. Or should I just drop the 4.13 oz. into the priming tank?
