Brew Stats
« on: December 29, 2008, 11:32:39 PM »
On occasion, I find myself flipping through my recipes folder and adding up the amounts of materials used as well as the total gallons brewed, kegged, ect.

Is there a possibility that you could include a button (within our recipe folder) that would tally these amounts based off of the calendar year/quarter/month...

maybe something simple like below:

Dates: 1 Jan 2008 to 1 Jan 2009
Total gallons brewed: ###
Total pounds of Grain: ###
Total Ounces of Hops: ###
Total ML /LTR of yeast: ##

You could also expand this to include things like:
Most common recipe brewed:
Most common specialty grain:
Most common adjunct:
Most common yeast:
Most common ABV range:

None of this will technically help us brew better, but it may give us a better picture of the brewer we are.

Just a thought.

Thanks for the suggestion!
  I think this is a great idea.  I think most of the information could be extracted from the brew log if you use it regularly.
