Simple interface (a good thing) but it’s missing some major ingredient
Categories such as Dry as well as Liquid Malt Extract as well as post-boil activity like hops Whirlpool or Steeping and Adjunct additions.

So far it works as advertised. Would be nice to have a section for the mash steps. I guess I could put that in the notes section, which is nice to have. Also, what is the purpose of the settings? The only option is to reset to default. How about changing notification sounds, one minute warning notification, continuous alert until acknowledged, color scheme, etc.

I have been using this app for over 6 months now. Overall, I like it and will continue to use despite some of the things I have already suggested:

1. Timer needs work. Needs to have a continuous alert until acknowledged. A single “beep” doesn’t cut it. More alert functions since in the brewing world, the brew schedule is critical! :)

2. More working space for notes. How about you click the notes and it opens to a bigger edit screen?

Thanks for the review. Good suggestions, especially the settings. Hope you continue to find Homebrew Timer useful on brew day.
