Wow, an open source homebrew program! I bought BeerSmith already, but I like to support open source, so I will definitely check this out!

I don't think you'll regret it. It's very sweet!

I have a suggestion/ enhancement request; I would like it if after the "Amount" column, was a "volume" column that would tell you how many cups/tbsp LME/DME/Corn sugar/honey, et al for a given "Amount" in weight. I know some of these would have to be best guesses, but you could also customize them as normal for your particular ingredient. I just typically have another spread sheet to do the conversions and it would be nice to to it all in one tool.

I agree, although I would love a calendar form like what BeerSmith has so we can record dates and times with information like OG, FG, temperatures, and the like.

Import recipes? Where are you getting this...are you just talking about the default ones preloaded into the program?

no - when you migrate from a different platform (like from Mac to PC or from Linux to Mac or whatever) you have to export the recipes on the old, then import in the new. . .

Problem:

I have 2 hop additions at 1hr. 1oz each (for a total 2oz) but under the brewday tab, step6:Hop Addition, it says to add 1.9oz.

If you add more than 1.9 it may explode. J/K

1) i'd like some ways to divide/subdivide/categorize the recipes. My original motive in this was i'd like to keep all the recipes that it comes with, but i'd also like to be able to view only the recipes that i have already made. This could be done by adding a field to the database, or perhaps be allowing the user to keep multiple databases or recipes. Of course, there are other categories that come to mind that might come in useful as well.

2) Along with this, i'd like a "rating" field somewhere. One to five stars, perhaps.

3) The ability to search and find recipes based on any of the ingredients or rating.

Regardless of whether you find these do-able or useful, much thanks for the time and effort you've already put into this.
I totally agree with the search function idea.
