How many beers did you brew in 2022?


Recommended Posts

Around 30 23ltr brews. All k&k of various types and makers. 

More or less settled on Coopers Canadian Blonde as my favourite. Now experimenting with "better" yeasts and reusing them also.

The search for the elusive perfect brew continues! 

The rabbit hole is more wombat sized now.

Only 27 k&k, but had a break due to surgery and post surgery restrictions. Also stopped in October due to upcoming overseas holiday. Can’t wait to start again, still haven’t unpacked my Brewzilla

I recommend a free app called Brewtracker.

@Malter White,  is this app available for Windows 10 - I seem to have trouble finding a download option for Microsoft versions....maybe it's just an Apple app

That doesn't seem to work Mick¬†ūüė¨

Nah, Brew Tracker works fine on most devices just not PC's apparently. I've installed a thing called Bluestacks to enable my PC to interact with the software but it's mighty slow. I hate this them and us approach to the 2 major platform technologies - seems you have to be wedded to one or the other or both sometimes. Grrrrrrrrr!

Fair enough, I guess I forget sometimes how many use their phones for the forum & pretty much everything else, of course I use mine, but I much prefer sitting at the PC & I also have a high def 32" Samsung curved screen monitor & it makes life easier.

I have got Brew Father on both, but I can't seem to make it work for me.

Just use a spread sheet or a word doc with tables. Works for me.

I have a BrewTracker question for those who use it. When counting the days that wort has been fermenting, as best I can tell it seems to count a ‚Äúday 0‚ÄĚ in. Eg I put a batch in¬†on the 16th and today on the 20th it says 3 days in wort.

I was just counting in 24hr periods from the time that I actually pitched the yeast.  Is this how Brewtracker counts and should I be including a day 0 in my measuring, in relation to reading others recipes and such?

Love excel, set it up with a few formulas to work out ABV, drop in some pic of labels, product shots and boom

Probably the way to go, but at the moment I'm loving doing an old school brew diary with pen and paper.
