brewCalc - Software for Homebrewers



brewCalc is a recipe formulation tool, a brewing calculator and evaluation tool all in one. brewCalc has been completely re-written using the Trolltech QT-4 toolkit, this means that it can be run on Windows. It took a while to come to grips with QT-4 and its way of doing things but after some trial and error I'm getting on top of it.

This release contains minor bug fixes and enhancements
  • Fixed a problem loading a brew where the loaded file wasn't being correctly added to the map
  • Mashsteps mash profile option now can update the main table with the new calculated data

Things to be done

  2. Get a correct Windows install package built
  3. Clean up some of the code
  4. The printing of the beer needs a clean up and work over
