Thanks Steve. Did you know it is also a powerful recipe designer too! If you have a water report for your source water, you can enter mineral additions until the ppm values match those in your report. The values you've entered can then be saved on the Profiles tab for later use. Your source water mineral values now represent your base water profile. Additional mineral and/or acid additions can then be added until you get the predicted mash pH value you want.

ezRecipe-RO uses the 2015 BJCP Style Guide to provide you with brewing information for nearly every style. It also provides IBU predictions based on hop usage in the boil, whirlpool or dry hopping. The hop storage index or HSI feature helps you to determine the loss of alpha acid over time, based on the type of storage used.

Whether adjusting your brewing water profile, or creating that perfect recipe, ezRecipe-RO makes the design process a lot of fun.

This is most excellent.

Even if you don't use RO water as long as you have a local water report you can just plug in stuff that matches your local water and your ready to build recipes with it, and/or fiddle around with small water adjustments. Maybe you can't make the "perfect" water profile that way but it's still useful.

I'm glad the hop storage/degradation adjustment I suggested became a permanent feature. It's something unique that nobody else does. I've just always used hopunion data on my own to do it when I know I have old hops on hand.

Thanks Vince!

I didn’t realize I could save my local profile. I just assumed it started with RO for some reason. Reckon I’ll play with it.

And here, I just figured out Bru’n Water.

I thought it was for RO only too. I'll go back and take a look also.

Thank you for your comments, I do take all user feedback very seriously. After reading through the latest set of posts I may have to recast the ezRecipe-RO name.

I'll throw my hat into this ring. I played around with this last night. I read your info about adding to get to my base water profile and saving it. I've gotten it close and will post back once I've played around with it. Thanks Vince!

Thanks, Vince good to know about my water profile able to be input, I will delve into it. Too bad I'm back to work, a month ago I had all day long to play with the calculator while mind numbing reruns of reruns were on tv.

I didn't look at your calculator until you mentioned it in the Wingsfan's thread. I somehow missed the recent comments and thought it was a calculator for building water, not a recipe builder. I started using QBrew and stuck with it for a long time. At one point, I bought BeerSmith, but at the time, it was too complex for me. After a while, I got back to it and have been using it for a long time now.

I just took a look at your recipe builder and I'm impressed. As was the case with BeerSmith when I first looked at it. there's a lot that I won't use now, but if I get more interested in water chemistry, I'm sure I'd appreciate those features.

One thing that ezRecipe doesn't have that BeerSmith has is late extract additions. Maybe I can do this, but I don't see how. I do a lot of stovetop (now portable induction cooktop) partial mash brewing. Doing a late addition lets me boil the hops in 4 gallons or so (5 gallon pot) with just the wort from the mash (or if I'm doing all extract, with part of the extract). That gives me better efficiency than if I boil all of the malt in that amount of water.

One thing that I'd like to see (but I freely admit that it's a feature that would appeal to a small minority of users) is the ability to set altitude (or boiling temperature) and have the IBU calculation automatically adjust. I've gotten accustomed to mentally adjusting the IBUs, but it would be nice to have the altitude/boiling point taken into consideration by the software.

Admitedly to date not much focus has been placed on partial boils or extract brewing. Understandably, when you think about it, ezRecipe has been designed to help build all grain recipes. I do appreciate your feedback as an extract brewer though.

As for including altitude and wort boiling point temperature adjustments, ezBIAB could possibly benefit from that feature.

Thank you for the idea to include HSI calculations in ezRecipe! I mentioned this feature to MCHA members Mike and Melissa Edwards, they own a hop farm in New Jersey. The were both very interested and aware of how hop storage affects their crop and the people who brew with their hops.
