Default Qbrew

I love this little app. What's great is it's FOSS and is available for XP, OSX and any other unix/linux.

You can also add your own styles and if an ingredient isn't in there, you can add those to.

Anyone else use it?

I've played around with it just a little bit. How do you add your own ingredients to it? I was going to put in a recipe a while back that required pale malt extract, and couldn't find it. It would be good to know how to add the ones that I don't find on it.

Never mind the previous question. I played around with it some at lunch and it looks pretty easy to add the new ingredients. New question though. Is there a good website to get the specifics on ingredients? E.g. the SRM value of pale malt extract.

Not that I have run across, but I haven't looked for one either. I'd be willing to bet there is one out there somewhere.

The wiki has a malts chart but nothing for extracts. If you find anything please post so we can update the wiki.

I could give some close numbers for the malts, but in my experience not all malt is the same color.

I use Qbrew as well. There is a new, enhanced version of it due any day now.

yeah, I think I have it. Version 0.3.9?
It was the version in the repositories when I upgraded Ubuntu, so thats the one I installed. The newest on their site is 0.3.5.

Thank you for telling me that. I switched from FC to Ubuntu and I hadn't reinstalled Qbrew. I was about to build it from source. I'm running 0.3.9 now too.

However, that isn't the upgraded version. The upgraded version is going to have a calculator for mash volume, strike temps, etc. I don't see it on 0.3.9.

Linux rocks !

yeah 0.3.10 is on there if you want to build from source. I am actually helping the guy out a bit by adding a **** load of stuff to the qbrewdata file because well it's missing a lot of hops and grains, especially specialty grains. Now only if I knew how to program in qt.
