Bru'n Water v 1.12 Posted

The new version of Bru’n Water has been posted to the Bru’n Water website. The new version includes an improved User Interface and it corrects an error in the mash pH estimation that occurs when batches significantly different from the typical 5 gallon batch were entered.

Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing Martin!

Awesome, Martin. Thanks for sharing, love Bru’n water!

Now, if it was just an iPad app… :slight_smile:

Yes! Would love that. Even better would be if it was part of a larger brewing app so I don’t have to use 2 different programs for brewing.

Thanks for the update! Nice to see my donation at work.

Thanks so much for sharing this great spreadsheet. For some reason I can’t get it to work with Libreoffice. Many of the cells have an Err:509 message. Is there something I need to do to get it to work?

Thanks.

Did you click on the filename on the download page or the downward pointing arrow on the right side of the page. If you click on the filename, it opens the file in Google Docs and F’s up everything. You have to click that downward pointing arrow to get it to download the real file to your machine.

I did just go through the whole download process and opened the program with Libreoffice. It seems to look and work normally. I hope the instruction above helps.

I downloaded it with the arrow link. I’m using Libraoffice 3.3.4 on Linux. Maybe it’s a Linux thing. I’ll keep digging.

Thanks! Downloaded and ready to go.

Hi Martin,

My beers have definitely improved since I started using your program. Thanks so much for this great tool! I just provided a little material support to show my appreciation. :stuck_out_tongue: I was wondering if the new version changes at all how phosphoric acid addition is calculated. In my experience, using a 70% solution of phosphoric acid carefully measured with a syringe, I add approximately one half of what BW recommends, to hit my target pH, with all other addititves at the exact recommended amounts in BW. Thanks.

What a pleasant feeling came to me when I was reading the phrase!)

So if I use distilled water , which I know has a ph of 7, what would you suggest I use/do for the water profile input?

Couldn’t you just skip spreadsheet #1 and #2, go straight to #3(water adjustment) and put in 100% dilution with distilled water. Select your desired beer profile, and make your adjustments from there??

I have just started using Bru’n water, so maybe there is a better way. Could pretty much enter 0 in everything on initial sheet too I would think.

I kinda assumed as much, but I figured if I’m going to do it, do it right. I just wanted to make sure its correct. I figure just input 0 in for everything?

Anyone who has used bru’n water for distilled water? I’m really confused.

From here: http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-distilled-water.htm

“Distilled water should ideally be nothing but hydrogen and oxygen molecules, with a PH level of 7 and no additional gases, minerals or contaminants.”

So, if the water is truly distilled, there should be nothing in it.

That’s what I do when using either distilled or RO.

Perfect. Thanks.
