Wow, so I looked through the pictures that my brewing buddy took last week, and really only one of them turned out very well. I like how shiny the kegs look at night though.
I also posted the source code
and a built executable for the app that I am currently running on the touch panel PC.
I integrated in my recipe database with a really flexible timer and some of my most commonly used brewing calculations. That and an old version of Winamp really made the touch panel PC highly useful.
Any other software widgets that people use on brew day? I tried to come up with other things to work into the app, and they were all more complex.
- recipe / timer integration - parse the recipe and auto-populate timing
- advanced timer functions - pre-program hops schedule
- alarms - audible alarms for both the timer and for temperature
- integration with embedded controller data
