If you are talking about in BrewPal, his database is already setup with most of the know available grains and I guess known/standard ppl per grain. I guess certain suppliers/brands might have different ppl's, but it's just an avg estimate. YOu can change it on the fly in your recipe for that grain if your grain has a diff ppl. The database however retains the original value.

You can edit the database and change the ppl values and even add a grain that is missing. YOu would then have to do research to assign it the correct ppl.

PPL? Do you mean PPG, or are you going half metric on us (points/pound/liter)?

You can get these values from a grain analysis sheet from the malt supplier when you get a sack of bulk grain (it varies a little due to lot, growing season, maltster). If you're using extract, the supplier/LHBS should also have this information on hand.

OK I'm seeing it now. When you plug in the type of grain, it automatically adjusts the value. It didn't seem to do that at first but I just plugged in my recipe and it auto adjusted for each type of grain...

It's Tinseth, but you can change the setting to use Rager.

Still the best App for composing recipes on-the-go and helping you on brew day EVAR!!!

Happy Holidays everyone!

I'm sitting here enjoying a pint of my Christmas beer and getting ready to submit 1.6.9 to the app store. I can't call it 1.7 because it doesn't have the BeerXML import/export I promised (I *am* working on it!), but it does have quite a lot of new features, which you will hopefully be playing with shortly. One nicety is the ability to change settings directly from the relevant tab (such as Tinseth vs Rager from the Hops tab), so you won't have to switch to the Settings tab anymore.

Re: Android... sadly, no, there are no plans for me to develop outside of the Apple + iTunes ecosystem. I work on Brew Pal in my free time and just don't have enough to give to learning/working in another development environment, sorry
