Version 1.0 - 1/1/2011

It is called "BeerCalc" but search for "Beer Stats" or "Jomebrew" in the Android Market and is named BeerCalc.  It currently has 6 tools related to beer and brewing beer.

Beer Stats: You can generate details about you beer like ABV, Calories, Carbs and more geeky stuff like determine Plato, Extract values and attenuation.

Conversions: There are a couple simple conversion used on brew day like Specific Gravity to Brix and Brix to Specific Gravity which helps when working with your refractometer.

Carbonation: When your are ready to bottle, you can calculate the amount of krausening wort (actively fermenting wort) to add to you newly fermented beer to naturally carbonate.

Recipe Scaling:  This multipurpose tool has several functions as well as being fun to see "what if".  It uses a couple simple values to advise how much grain you will need add (or reduce) if you want to scale the gravity of your beer up or down. You can determine your grain utilization efficiency of a finished brew day.  You can reverse engineer the approximate total grain weight of a beer with just a little knowledge and a couple assumptions.

Water Volume:  A simple to use tool to calculate the needed mash and sparge water volumes and the strike water temperature.
