    My brewing is half on the back burner at the moment for good reasons in that I have decided that I want to improve my technique, and hopefully the end results!, so I am upgrading my brew shed and equipment. This will also make brewing a little easier as at present I set up my gear outside the shed in good weather. Good weather being as long as my umbrella can fend off the rain.

    Not a sexy part of this upgrade but I realise that my record keeping has to be improved greatly so that I can revisit recipes and results. Can anyone point me in the direction of a good record sheet for a brew day and possibly a final section on the result?

    Many thanks.

    Do you use any brewing apps?

    Personally use brewfather for all notes, and records. Brewday and through to finished drunk product

    I came across this record sheet a few years ago. I use it for every brew day and its great to look back on old recipes. I note all my brew timings on the back and have noticed I am getting quicker after 35 brews....

    I have also attached a brew day log sheet. I don't use this one but you might find it useful.

    I use a brew journal, I like to have a written record. It's got tasting notes, ideas for tweaks etc all over it :laugh8:

    That's all great advice thanks. I like the idea of a written journal but I also need to choose an app to use. A whole new question.
