    Noice So not far from going public then?

    (On your recipe) Any reason why the strike and sparge volume is closer, eg 50/50 ?

    It's the Castle Lite recipe with dextrose .. so the grainbill is actually smaller than 'normal' - grist strike water ratio is set for 2.5 .. but see there is a mistake in the calcs as it included the dextrose as part of the grist - I'm fixing this as we speak and inbetween my brew. Then the sparge vol is just the diffs between total and strike vols. I also added an infusion step between Alpha B to A - so sparge is even less now.

    There's forever niggly bits, couple of bugs , then enhancements, so the software is ever evolving.
    I want to be on a comfortable level to say - ok, this this is stable enough to be deployed and works properly and results are accurate. It'as almost done. Also remember the software is geared according to my brewing procedures - boil kettle as HLT, coolerbox mash tun, boil kettle. I've added the 'no chill' feature as per someones request in the beginning.
    Someone also offered to give it an inital run through - he mentioned was his job as software QA. Then I'd guess alterations afterwards. I'll then offer it to a couple peeps for initial testing. I'm sure there will be alterations made. Anyway it is ongoing, ever improving.

    I've been struggling to draw the line with this software's development - been adding more and more balls to the xmas tree. I've finally decided it's time for an initial roll out.

    I've packaged for a 32 bit PC .. if I can have a volunteer to run this version. I'm at this stage just looking for one person to see if the downloads work and the software installs properly. Once this works others may grab a copy.

    Yea ? hands up.

    EDIT: Volunteers can email me on bugubrew@gmail.com
