Is Brewtarget portable? I often do my brew day planning on my PC, and then fire up my old laptop and use that at my brew station. And I often sneak a few minutes at work to plan future brews as well. It would be nice if I could have Brewtarget on my thumb drive so I wouldn't need to install it on 3 computers. I especially don't want to install it on my work PC. ;-)

If it's not, could it be made portable? I know nothing about coding...maybe this would require a total re-write?

Thanks NoTrubble! That's pretty slick. I'll try to play around with it this weekend and make sure everything is working as expected. But so far so good!

Check the pdf's on this page. Do some arithmetic to convert their "OG's" to figure out the gravity points per gallon

Does Brewtarget take grain absorption into account when formulating water volumes? if so, is there a tab I'm missing somewhere that I can adjust this according to my setup? also, what is the difference between "all grain ideal" and "all grain 10g cooler setup"?

thanks,

Yes, brewtarget does take absorption into account. On the most recent versions (this is an old thread, so I'm not sure if you are still using v1.2.3 or not), it is the third field from the bottom on the equipment editor.

I believe the difference between the two profiles is that the "ideal" profile has no kettle to fermenter losses.

Just a tip about Brewtarget, if you use Dropbox you can set your recipes.xml file to save in the dropbox folder and then access it from any computer. That way you can use your laptop outside to access the realtime recipe database without having to manually sync the files.

I wish Brewtarget had a "discard changes" option. Right now, if you muck up a recipe you have to close and quit without saving to discard changes.
