Does anybody know how to calculate the results of dry hopping? What do I put as the "time". Anybody have any ideas?

dry hopping adds no bitterness. Put it as 0 minutes if you wish.

I played around w/ qbrew a bit, but when I did I was still VERY new at brewing and had no idea what I was doing, and found it a bit too difficult to use. I've been using BeerAlchemy for a while and really like it, it was a bit easier to use and taught me a lot. I'd be willing to play w/ qbrew a bit more now that I have some experience...

I am new to brewing and am really liking qbrew. Would any of you with data additions like to share? When you add data it gets put into a .qbrewdata file in your home directory. If you could post it or email it to me that would be great (will PM address). I could make a patch and send it to the qbrew author.

Thanks,
-Rob

Default QBrew Batch Value?

I've been using QBrew to calc some recipes and I have an Ordinary English Bitters in mind.

But "hitting" the style numbers requires I have about 3.25 gallons of bottle-able product.

So when using QBrew to figure out your values, is the batch size equal to what you want to have left, or what you start with?

I ask this because I want to have enough brewing water to account for evaporation (15% per hour) and trub absorption (~5%).

I'm trying to compensate for coming up short at the end of the process.

So it looks like development on this application has ceased, as the last update was back in, what, `08? I've downloaded the source and am starting to look through it, but I'm not familiar at all with the different brewing softwares available and the required/desired feature sets. If you were going to add one thing to qbrew, what would it be? What about two things? I want to get a feel for what I can do to improve this software.

Be nice to have the ability to calculate OG based on less than a full boil.

Sounds like the perfect feature for me to play around with the software with! Great suggestion, I'll see what I can do.

Has there been any further development with this program? I'd love to keep using it but it is getting kind of old.
