Making a Brew Log


Nov 29, 2009

Maybe I'm missing something but I can't seem to figure out how to keep a log of my brew sessions/recipes/dates. What I mean is I want to keep track of the dates I brew, even when it's brewing the same recipe more than once. I have a folder for Made Recipes, which is fine, but I want to be able to list the same recipe with the same name in it only with a different brew date. Am I missing something simple? Thanks.

If you have your folder for Made Recipes, you can keep copies of the same recipe with the same name in that folder.
When you're in that folder, above the list of recipes, you should see column headings such as Name, Style, etc.
Right-click on those headings and select Customize Columns.
In the dialog box that appears, from the list of Available Fields on the left, you can select Date Brewed and click the Add button to add it to the list of fields on the right.
Click OK when you are done.
Now your Made Recipes folder will also show a column with the Date Brewed for each recipe. If you click that column heading, you can sort the list by the Date Brewed. Click it again and it will sort in reverse order.

Hope that helps for what you are wanting.
