    If your iPad and iPhone are linked to the same Apple ID, then you only need to buy it once. But
    if your iPhone was your personal iPhone, and your iPad was from work, then that probably means
    you'd hav...

    If you buy the iPhone app you can also run it on other apple devices that are hooked up to your
    AppleID, including your iPad.The website works well on the iPad in Safari.

    Hi,Glad you like the site!In terms of yeast attenuation, we use what the manufacturers list.
    Attenuation comes down to many factors, including wort profile, gravity, mash temp,
    fermentation temp, yeas...

    The 12 lb of grain had 438 potential gravity points. Hitting 1.060 OG with 7.5g is 82%. Maybe
    you can eke out a little more but getting to 1.072??? Trub losses don't change OG, it only
    affects how muc...

    Also, I boiled down to about 6 gallons. After cooling for about an hour and then leaving behind
    a half gallon of hops (there was a lot of hops in this recipe and I filtered them all out
    before adding ...

    This is Larry from Brewer's Friend. Came up with the following:A) Gravity readingsI have a
    cheap refractometer off Amazon, and it reads all over the place. I need to take about 8 samples
    then average ...

    Guys, thanks for the kind words!

    This a KEY piece of information and it certainly should be shown. I dare say you never brew
    without knowing this target??This week's release of BF will add the pre-boil gravity estimate
    to the recipe ...

    Since this thread is here, I have a question about BF.Does the final recipe show Pre-boil
    target volume AND gravity as well as Post-Boil target volume AND gravity on the printed
    output?ThanksOf all fo...

    I use brewers friend also and find its a great app. How up to date is the refractometer
    converter? I compared it with nb's and there was a big difference on the finished
    calculations.Thanks for the ki...

Just bought the Brewer's Friend app for iOS. I'm looking for suggestions on how to add Apple Cider into the recipes so that it will accurately affect the gravity and other measurements? I entered it as a custom fermentable with a PPG but it didn't affect anything. Also, if I am adding things into the secondary like dry hopping or adding cider to secondary, how can you specificy this? Not use a boil time #?
