I was just messing around trying to build me a brew log file that is editable, and could be printed off as a blank form as well. Not really sure if this is a good idea, but I kinda wanted to see what others think of it. If alot of ppl like it I may continue to edit it. Also I am up for any idea for changes. Thanks for reading.


This Brew Log is completely editable and can also be printed off to write on as well. You can save the files after you add the data.
*Updated V1.3.2 3/7/12*
*Now includes a Checklist for Extract
** Includes Tasting Notes

Here is File: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/44796802/BrewForm_v1.3.2.pdf

I like it. I am thinking a about doing an excel version, with a tab to keep a tally of efficiency and attenuation. I'm a pretty new and haven't really taken the best notes so far. I want to start and I think this might. Be really helpful.

Having a standard form that you can easily print is a great idea for keeping track of your brews.

I don't know how to do it as a PDF, but an excel table like quadmx08 suggested is what I would do. The bonus is that in excel you can use the formulas to pull the data together to get some fun stats.

How many pounds of grain did I use last year, what types, hops, efficiency over time, etc.

Your right with the Excel and I do plan on that as well, but I dont much care for open offices version or at least all the ones I download wont work well with open office. So far we have been just using print offs and I still keep everything either on my computer or my iBrewMaster ipad. but we do keep paper back up in case something happens. Plus this helps with the what did he write? Since I don't have the best hand writing this helps keep 90% readable. But I will work on an excel version in the future at least one that works with Microsoft and open office.

Added the Tasting Sheet, I think this will be it for a while until I start to do AG, But I believe I will be starting an Spreed Sheet file to add in auto calculations....

Thanks. Also I did notice that after you download you can save the file only print off. I will chance that in the next update. I believe you should be able to save the file. Just got to figure out what setting to change. Keep. Look out forth next update 1.3.3

There's a great brew log that uses Google Docs here.

I like that spreadsheets can calculate formulas automatically for you once you enter in some basic data.
